Standard Taglib

1.0 Release

This directory containts the final 1.0 release of the Standard Taglib, Jakara Taglibs's open-source implementation of the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL). JSTL is a standard under the Java Community Process.

For source code to the Standard Taglib, see the nightly version of the Jakarta Taglibs source tree.

For more information about JSTL, including links to the specification and pointers to upcoming books, see Sun's JSTL page.

Thank you for your interest in the JSP Standard Tag Library.


The 1.0 releases for the Standard Taglib are named jakarta-taglibs-stanadrd-1.0, followed by both .tar.gz and .zip. This binary distribution contains JAXP 1.2 classes, and the entire distribution has been tested under Tomcat 4.0.4.

Because some earlier versions of Tomcat have trouble loading the JAXP 1.2 classes, we have also made available the older XML libraries that we used in prior milestone releases of the Standard Taglib. These files are available in files named jakarta-taglibs-standard-oldxml-compat, followed by both .tar.gz and .zip. The README files that accompany both archives describe how to install the right classes for your environment.

Note: The tar files in the distribution use GNU tar extensions and must be untarred with a GNU compatible version of tar.


If you have questions about the Standard Taglib, or the JSTL standard it implements, you are encouraged to join the mailing list. If you are interested in joining, online instructions are available.

PGP Signatures

The tar.gz and zip files have been digitally signed (using a PGP-compatible program). Signatures show up in files ending in .asc that accompany tar.gz and zip files. The PGP keys can be found in the distribution directory at

Standard Taglib distributions have all been signed with the reference-implementation lead's key. The public-key fingerprint for this key follows:
