Hi everbody!
I have used JavaBean as arraylist and hardcoded some values in the servlet. I am now trying to show those JavaBean values through JSP to the user. my code in JSP is:
<jsp:useBean id="qb" class="QuoteBean"/>
// I think default scope=page, so didnt mention
<jsp:setProperty name="qb" property="*"/>
When I execute JSP page, the error i get is : QuoteBean qb = null.
Can anybody pls help figuring out the problem.
