Hello, I need create an object in my JSP (pageScope) with JSTL. The tag c:set don't work for me, because it don't have a manner of give the class of the object, like:

jsp:useBean id="beanForm" class="FormOfer" scope="page"

useBean works like I'd like works c:set, but How can I make this with JSTL?

PD: Sorry for my English

With JSTL, you set the bean object in servlet code in the desired scope and forward the request to the target JSP, where you can use JSTL to set the value of the bean like

Servlet Code:
FormOfer offer = new FormOfer();

JSP Code:
<c:set target="${beanForm}" property="name" value="carlos"/>

What have you got against <jsp:useBean>? I use it all the time in conjunction with the JSTL.
