Your bean is not found! Is it in a package? If so you'll need to prefix the tag accordingly. You'll also need to change your name, JavaRanch has a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp
Thanks, Brian. "wiwil" Please change your "Publicly Displayed Name" by modifying your Profile after reviewing the guidelines at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp Assuming you will do that, I am answering your qstn. Please cooperate. <jsp:useBean id="item" class="ItemBean">
It is not a good practice to put beans without a package. If you do this then the App server will look for the bean in the same package that your generated Servlet code is. Obviously, that fails. Also, you are NOT using the useBean tag correctly. <jsp:useBean ...> [ code ] </jsp:useBean>.
