I'm learning JSP using Jbuilder3.5 Enterprise.
when I run my sample codes from the localhost builded in Jbuilder, it come out following error:
Method setAttribute(java.lang.String, java.lang.String) not found in interface javax.servlet.http.HttpSession.
session.setAttribute( "theName", name );
is there anything wrong with the code ? or some limitation of Jbuilder3.5 ?
Pls help...Thanks a lot!

SetAttribute is only available with version 2.2 of servelts and above. You must be using a version less than 2.2. You can use the putValue() method instead.
