gives me a complie error on line 5, "hello cannot be resolved", which to me implies that the bean has not been created. Yet if I remove line 5 the page compiles without any issues. Can anyone see something that I don't see? This is not critical... I just hate it when something doesn't work and I can't see why.
That page is so old I think it might have been originally written using a stone slab and chisel.
Get yourself a copy of the JSP 2.0 Specification -- links available in JSP FAQ.

Well, it appears that the JSP specification no longer supports the <bean> tag. Just curious though, the bean tag allowed for introspection, a process that allowed the bean to automatically detect and then use applicable incoming parameters through the request object. Is there a comparable method that anyone knows of in the new JSP specifications? Or is it necessary now to always explicitly pass the parameters to the bean? For what it's worth, introspection seemed like a real handy-dandy thing.
