Dear all, i encounter a very strange problem. Every time I want to test a JSP page that imports a JavaBean, I receive the following error message about import declaration.
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP An error occurred at line: 1 in the jsp file: /addressDisplay.jsp Generated servlet error: [javac] Compiling 1 source file C:\java\plateforme\tomcat\work\Standalone\localhost\chapter14\addressDisplay_jsp.java:7: '.' expected import AddressBean; ^
I'm don't see what is wrong in the declaration of my JSP page:
the code of the bean AdresseBean is the following:
Really I don't understand what's happening. I would be very grateful for any assistance. Regards, Cyril.

you don't need an import statement if it is just a class/bean. you only use import statements to import packages. from the code you pasted that bean is not in a package.

Hi Tim, Thanks for your response. I have tried without the import statement and now there's a problem because the class is not found:
C:\java\plateforme\tomcat\work\Standalone\localhost\chapter14\addressDisplay_jsp.java:42: cannot resolve symbol symbol : class AddressBean location: class org.apache.jsp.addressDisplay_jsp AddressBean address = null; ^
by the way, are you sure we don't need to import the bean, even if it is not part of package? The code I test come from source code of book SCWCD Exam Study Kit, and the import statement is right in the page JSP. My Bean class is in WEB-INF/classes directory ... I'm stuck Regards, Cyril.
