I am currently developing simple tags using JBoss 4.0. I have written a simple tag handler class that extends a SimpleTagSupport.
I have created a *.tld file for this tag handler and stored this under the WEB-INF folder for simplicity.
I then created a JSP page to use the tag making sure that the uri property is set to reflect what is entered in the tld file. Programmatically, the code works fine because I have tested this on Tomcat 5.5.7.
When I deploy the application on JBoss AS 4.0, it does not complain. But when I call the JSP page containing the tag, I get the org.apache.jasper.JasperException + Unable to load tag handler class error.
I suspect there must be something wrong with my development environment or with JBoss.
Please help, if you can.
Many thanks in advance.
