Hi! I'd like to try using JSP + bean with some logic for implementation. It is simple example so probably Tomcat is good enough. I created ProJavaServer directory and placed .jsp file, created ProJavaServer\WEB-INF\classes directory and placed compiled bean there. In %TOMCAT_HOME%/conf/server.xml i added: docBase="c:\WORK/ProJavaServer"> I run successfully examples that not included beans, so path and other settings probably set properly. To exclude typo i downloaded example from coreservlets.com And it does not work. C:\tomcat\work\localhost_8080%2Fexamples\_0002fjsp_0002fStringBean_0002ejspStringBean_jsp_0.java:105: Class jsp.StringBean not found. out.print(JspRuntimeLibrary.toString((((StringBean)pageContext.findAttribute("stringBean")).getMessage()))); I look for advice how to place my files to make it work. Thanks in advance
I think the problem is not that it can't find your bean, but that you haven't "import"ed it into your JSP. If you look at the error message it is looking for a class jsp.StringBean. Just as with any other Java class, a JSP only looks in its own package (jsp) and any packages or classes listed in import statements for classes mentioned by name. Is your StringBean class in a package? if so you need to import the full classname or the whole package it belongs to. Is your StringBean in the "default" package? if so you need to explicitly import it by name.
