struts tag

I'm trying to reference the property of a nested bean in a struts html:file tag.
Here is my code :<c:forEach items="${}" var="service" varStatus="servStatus">
<c:forEach items="${service.documents}" var="document" varStatus="docStatus">
<html:file name="document" property="theFile" size="30"/>
<html:text name="document" property="docCode" size="30"/>

While the tag html:text works fine, the html:file gives me the following error:
"javax.servlet.ServletException: No getter method for property theFile of bean document"
Anyway my bean document has got getter and setter methods for the property

Can you help please

The Struts tag is probably expecting document to be a scripting variable rather than a scoped variable. The JSTL/EL does not create scripting variables.

In future posts, please be sure to enclose any posted code in UBB code tags. (See the CODE button on the entry page).
