are u actually importing your class in your jsp file?
<%@page import="fully.qualified.class"%>

no i am not actually importing the class. i am trying to use that bean to capture the inputs in a html file.
according to the tutorial i read, the class file must be there in the web-server's classpath.
i am using tomcat, so am placing it in webinf/classes/.
while the servlets run beautifully, why is this jsp not able to locate the bean class?
thanks

why is this jsp not able to locate the bean class?

Because as Andres already pointed out, you need to import a class before you can use it. This is elementary Java.
