Hi,
I am a newbie in JSP, Could you please tell me how can I create an instance of a class (which is in the default package) in JSP.
whenver I try to do it, i get an error saying the class not found?

how can i do it?

thanks

I've had issues with this myself. My resolution was to create a package and put the class in it. Which works just fine and seems to me to be a preferential way of coding since it allows you to group your classes by functionality. Just my two cents. If you want to keep it in the default package I can't help. Sorry.

You can't. The class must be in a package other than the default.

OK, I tried that too...

But the problem persists...

I put the class in a package...and then reffered to that class as package.classname

still it says package.classname not found.

what should i do now?

Are you putting the class file in the proper folder? Have you reviewed the JSP FAQ entry on this subject?

You might not be using the import.

A code snippet follows. Observe how the StringBuffer and List is imported.



whatever in java.lang need not be imported
