Hi all, I want to write a few classes for my shopping cart. I will have a Item.java,Billing.java,Shipping.java and a ShoppingCart.java. I have a main DisplayShoppingCart.jsp file that will use those classes. Can someone tell me how to create a package containing all my class files and where to put this package so the jsp file knows where to get them. Also do I have to change my classpath? I tried creating a subfolder in the folder which contains my jsp files and naing it cart. I placed all my class files in there and used the : <%@ page import="cart.*"%> but It did'nt work. What am i doing wrong? Should I be putting my class files in the WEB-Inf/classes folder? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Rui
Since JSPs get turned into servlets, all support classes have to be treated just like servlet classes. Therefore they have to go in the WEB-INF\classes. You should not have to do anything to Classpath since the servlet engine has its own rules about finding classes. Bill
