I have a problem with my very simple first JSF app.
when I access page, I get the following error.

org.apache.jasper.el.JspPropertyNotFoundException: /inputname.jsp(15,3) '#{StoreNameBean.personName}' Target Unreachable, identifier 'StoreNameBean' resolved to null

what's the problem? I searched google, but couln't find any solution.

I have all necessary libraries in project, and I am using jsf 1.2.

I don't know why changing the scope fixed it, but I do know that "StoreNameBean" is not a proper name for a backing bean. StoreNameBean is an instance, not a class, so its name should be a lower-case letter. JSF will usually accept a mis-capitalized name, but some of the development tools will not, and JSF annotations won't accept such names by default.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
