I have the following code in my servlet. I wana call a jsp from the servlet and i'm using a java bean. But when i compile it i get message RequestDispatcher(line 5) class not found and method request.setAttribute(...)not found.(line 3)
I've also read that RequestDispatcher is a interface.....???

1. MemberBean member=new MemberBean(userid);

2. ServletContext xx=getServletContext();
3. request.setAttribute("member",member);
4. String jsp="member.jsp";
5. RequestDispatcher disp=xx.getRequestDispatcher(jsp);
6. disp.forward(request,response);

Ya just check out whether you are using servlet version 2.1 and above because request dispatcher is not supported by previous versions
I agree. Here's the link:
