This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
You need to make sure that MyBean is in the classpath for your application. Also, it's worth upgrading to Apache Tomcat rather than using the Java Web Server since it is no longer supported and Tomcat is much more up to date. Simon [ November 13, 2002: Message edited by: Simon Brown ]
You also need to put your bean class in a package and specify the package in the <jsp:useBean tag AND import the package. This comes up so often it should be in a FAQ. Here is why: when the compiler sees a reference to a class with no package (default package) it looks in the "current" directory. With servlet engines you have no control over the current directory, so the compiler won't find the class. WBB
