The JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL) came about under JSR-52 of the Java Community Process (JCP). You can find the specification at http://jcp.org/jsr/detail/52.jsp. JSR-52 covers the creation of a standard tag library for JavaServer Pages (JSP) and allows this library to be available to all compliant JSP containers. The JSTL is a comprehensive set of standard actions that most (if not all) JSP developers can use. The real value of the JSTL is that it provides a way to dramatically increase the productivity of JSP authors. The standard actions are delivered in a simple, flexible fashion that can reduce the learning curve of creating JSPs. While the JSTL is meant to be used with JSP technology, it’s actually a separate set of functionality.
