happened since most of the time I'm working on updates to existing
deployed webapps running on Tomcat 6.
Anyway, this sucked up about 1 hour of my life, trying to find out why
my JSP 2.0 style tags weren't working. Even things as basic as c:out
weren't working either.
Finally stumbled upon a forum post that pointed to this.
Aha!! The webapp I'd created using the Maven archetype
maven-archetype-webapp has Servlet 2.3 declared in it's web.xml. A
version that is pretty bloody old, considering the ref implementation
for that is Tomcat 4! Seriously, an upgrade for the built-in web.xml
wouldn't be that hard to do, Maven plugin people!
Anyway, all's well.
