Hi everybody,I'm having problem while calling bean class in my jsp e.g. <jsp:useBean id="user" class="UserData" scope="session"/> gives me an error that "cannot resolve symbol : class UserData",i'm keeping my UserData.class in web-inf\classes directory and have set the classpath in system as well as in catalina.bat.
Plz suggest me the possible solution asap.

"Trident Executive",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp.
We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please edit your profile and select a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.

Don't u have a package structure for ur classes. If you dont have, putting your classes into some package will avoid lot of frustrations like this.

This needs to be an FAQ somewhere. A bean class used in a JSP must be in a package.

I've actually managed to include a bean outside of a package using the import statement in the jsp, for example:-
<%@ page language="java" import="iBean" %>
The bean class just sits in the WAR structure under WEB-INF/classes

That will work in Java 1.3 but not in 1.4.
