forward from jsp to servlet in a package

Hi,
I have just moved all my servlet classes from the default classes folder into their own packages, but now the jsp files cannot find them!
Please can you tell me what I need to change to make this work:
<jsp:forward page="/servlet/myServlet" />
to find myServlet in the 'peter.myPackage' folder.
Many thanks

You need to edit your web.xml and update the servlet-class elements to point to the new locations.

Thankyou very much Chris, that works well for forwarding posts etc.
The problem now is that simple 'bean' classes (which just hold data in an object) can't be found from inside the JSP. I have put these into packages too. Any idea how I can get hold of these from the jsps?

please ignore my last post! It's all sorted by using the full path to the class.
Thanks.

You can also declare imports in JSP so that you do not need to fully qualify every classname.
Example:
