Assume Dog has a property breed, can we get the property by this: <% Dog dog=new Dog(); dog.setBreed("spaniel"); session.setAttribute("d",dog);
%> <jsp:getProperty name="d" property="breed"/>
In other words, without going through <jsp:useBean>.
In tomcat, this does print out "spaniel". However, in JSP spec 5.3
consequence of the previous paragraph is that objects that are stored in, say, the session by a front component are not automatically visible to jsp:getProperty actions in that page unless a jsp:useBean, or some other action, makes them visible.
Can anyone explain the rule relating useBean and getProperty.
