    Default equal symbol expected - where had I gone wrong?

    Hi,

    at my jsp page, I put in the following in order to use the jstl tag library but I'm not sure where I had gone wrong except Netbeans IDE kept saying equal symbol expected at the errror line.

    The line is :-

    <%@ taglib prefix="sql uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/sql" prefix="sql"%>

    and then I'm supposed to add in another line which is as below but not working as well.

    <%@ page import="java.io.*,java.util.*,java.sql.*"%>

    Hope someone can advise where I have gone wrong.
    Tks.

    Does it tell you whereabouts in the line the equals sign is expected? It's always best to copy and paste the full error text output if you want someone else to help you. I can see in the first line you've posted a problem with opening and closing speech marks ("). That's usually enough to stop XML working.

    Now, I tried to run the same declaration on another computer and it works.

    But, I am getting the following errors:-

    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/netbeans/modules/web/project/ant/JspCSingle
    Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.netbeans.modules.web.project.ant.JspCSingle
    at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java: 200)

    at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClassInternal(ClassLoade r.java:320)
    Could not find the main class: org.netbeans.modules.web.project.ant.JspCSingle. Program will exit.

    I don't understand what's going on. Can somebody please help?
