[MyFaces] tld recognition

I have these .jar files in my WEB-INF/lib directory

I have the following line in a .jsp file

<%@taglib uri="http://myfaces.apache.org/extensions" prefix="x"%>

but I'm getting the error

"Welcome.jsp": org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The absolute uri: http://myfaces.apache.org/extensions cannot be resolved in either web.xml or the jar files deployed with this application

I must say I'm doing this in JBuilder 2005 and that may pose a problem although I can't see why.  I've made sure (I think) that the program can't be finding the standard JSF stuff, but instead is using the MyFaces stuff.

Any ideas why the "x" tag is not being recognized?

I can now answer my own question so maybe this will help.  For the latest version of My Faces 1.1.3, you don't use the "extensions" anymore, but rather tomahawk.  So, the extension is "t" rather than "x" and

<%@taglib uri="http://myfaces.apache.org/tomahawk" prefix="t"%>

rather than

<%@taglib uri="http://myfaces.apache.org/extensions" prefix="x"%>

Unfortunately, Borland's JBuilder IDE still does not recognize the "t" and wants to suggest a tag, but the program compiles, runs and uploads files as advertised by apache.
