Hi All,
I am new to JSF and trying run a simple programme, this pgm accepts a string from user and displays it to console.
I wrote a simple jsf form with input text and its value is assigned to a variable in bean, whrn I run the pgm first page displays fine but whne I click on save button following error occurs.javax.servlet.ServletException: Error testing property 'myMsg' in bean of type null
at javax.faces.webapp.FacesServlet.service(FacesServlet.java:209)
at org.apache.catalina.core.ApplicationFilterChain.internalDoFilter(ApplicationFilterChain.java:247)

at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardWrapperValve.invoke(StandardWrapperValve.java:256)
Root Cause
javax.faces.el.PropertyNotFoundException: Error testing property 'myMsg' in bean of type null
at com.sun.faces.el.PropertyResolverImpl.getType(PropertyResolverImpl.java:342)
at com.sun.faces.el.impl.ArraySuffix.getType(ArraySuffix.java:235)

HEre is my code
<h:form id="loginForm">
<h utputText value="Input Your Message" />
<h:inputText value="#{hiberBean.myMsg}" id="myMsg"/>
<h:commandButton value="Save" action="#{hiberBean.saveMsg}" />

public class HiberBean
private String myMsg;

public void setMyMsg(String myMsg)
this.myMsg = myMsg;

public String getMyMsg()
return this.myMsg;

public String saveMsg()

return "finish";


Bean is defined in faces-config as well

Now how do I resolve this?
PLease help

JSF is not able to find your bean, show managed bean configuration and more error log.
