Hi ranchers, I tried to import a class(e.g. test.class)from JSP and put it in ..\WEB-INF\classes file. However, it got a complilation error: "org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP An error occurred at line: -1 in the jsp file: null Generated servlet error: [javac] Since fork is true, ignoring compiler setting. [javac] Compiling 1 source file [javac] Since fork is true, ignoring compiler setting. [javac] C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\work\Standalone\localhost\test\clientsearch_jsp.java:8: '.' expected [javac] import test; ^ .........." and my page directive is: <%@ page import="test" %> I compiled it fine in tomcat 4.0 but failed in 4.1. Can anyone tell me what happened? Many thanks!
Hi It looks like the Jasper JSP compiler is objecting to a class that is not contained in a package. It is always recommended that you create classes in a package hierarchy. Have you tried putting you Test.class in a package ?

There is a Bug?? Feature?? with JSP's, JSP's cannot fine classes that are not in a package! Change your class to have a package such as test so the fully qualified name of the class is test.test and inport this.
