Why does the import attribute of page directive does not work for <jsp:useBean>
I was importing a class using
<%@ page import = "beans.Person" %>
so I guessed i'd only have to do
<jsp:useBean id="person" class="Person" scope="request" />
but it gave me an error. I had to use the fully qualified name in the class property of <jsp:useBean> tag
<jsp:useBean id="person" class="beans.Person" scope="request" />
Why doesn't the page directive work here?

That comes from jsp spec.
for <jsp:useBean>, class and type must be fully qualified path .
i.e class="package.class" | type="package.class"

v2.0 Spec Pg. 1-104, Table JSP.5-1
The fully qualified name of the class that defines the implementation of the object.The class name is case sensitive.
