class attribute invalid

Hi all,

I'm about to go bananas. I'm trying to write a simple JSP with a bean and I keep getting this error (I'm using Tomcat 5.5.17):

This is my bean:

And this is the interesting part of my JSP page

The path the .class file is in is $CATALINA_HOME\webapps\ROOT\am\WEB-INF\classes\be\ictservices\aansluitingsmodule\dto

What am I doing wrong?

Move your "am" directory from the ROOT directory to the webapps directory.
All of your webapps should be directly under the webapps directory.
The ROOT folder is a webapp. It is the root webapp that ships with Tomcat.
Webapps can't be nested inside one another.
