Hello Ranchers

i have done the basic example on jsp from HeadFirst servlets and Jsp.

The code of basic jsp is class//

public class Counter
private static int count;
public static int getCount()
return count;

and the Jsp page saved as BasicCounter.jsp
<center>the page count is
<%= Counter.getCount()%>
and web.xml file

my doubt is iam getting the error as
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP:
An error occurred at line: 4 in the jsp file: /src/BasicCounter.jsp
Counter cannot be resolved
1: <html>
2: <body>
3: <center>the page count is
4: <%= Counter.getCount()%>
5: </center>
6: </body>
7: </html>

please help me to slove it

You need to PackageYourBeans. It used to be possible to keep them in the default package, but no longer.

You also need to import your beans into the JSP.

beans are in the default package, is it necessary to keep beans in package.

Sure!!! The bean file must be well packaged and try include that file in your JSP file...

Never try to be a hard-worker. Be a smart-worker.
