Hi All,

In a java class XMLAdd I have 3 variables document, outDoc, outDocNode of type org.jdom.Document and one variable of type

In a jsp showall.jsp I declared this class as a java bean using jsp:useBean tag.
But there exists a error at useBean declaration as the work directory showing error.
and in jsp:setProperty i am setting all the properties of the bean.
So is it mandatory that I need to provide setters and getters for all the 4 variables ?

Below are the snippets for the class, jsp.

setters and getters are defined for xmlFile and outDoc only.


when I see the work directory the generated servlet code is stopped at the useBean declaration of XMLAdd class.

the generated servlet code :

so is that the error is due to that there are no getters and setters for document and outDocNode variables ?

Yes, useBean follows the JavaBean conventions and looks for setter methods in order to populate your bean's fields.
