JSTL 1.0 has 42 actions, each of which has an average of two syntaxes and four attributes. That's a lot of information, most of which will eventually become second nature to you the more you use JSTL. In the meantime, this chapter provides a handy reference that summarizes each action with brief discussions of the action's syntaxes, attributes, and error handling.

JSTL provides four tag libraries, which are listed in Table 11.1.
