Yes, you have to compile any auxiliary classes and put the class file(s) in the correct place. The JSP engine only creates and compiles the file representing the page.

The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.

Yes you have to compile the class file and place it in the classes directory of the JWS,so that the jsp file can find it in it's classpath
