    ****************************************************************
    When RAD is used to deploy a JSP application and the "Run
    server with resources within the workspace" option
    is enabled (for loose jar files) there might be errors
    locating .tag files.  Example exceptions resulting from this
    problem:
    com.ibm.ws.jsp.JspCoreException: JSPG0036E: Failed to find
    resource /META-INF/tags/...
    com.ibm.ws.jsp.JspCoreException: JSPG0047E: Unable to locate
    tag library...
    

Problem conclusion

  • The JSP engine logic has been updated to correctly handle .tag
    files within the /META-INF/tags folder of a loose jar file.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix packs 9.0.0.8 for WebSphere
    Application Server, and 18.0.0.2 for WebSphere Liberty.
