A couple notes. You don't need to import java.lang, it is imported automatically just as in a regular Java class. For testing things out having Java code in your JSP is OK but you should try to avoid code in your JSP as much as possible. If you want to avoid using a bean, and there are reasons to do this, you may want to use a custom tag to do what you want to do. It also helps to include the error messages you are seeing along with your code to help the troubleshooting along. Hope this helps and good luck!

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.
