I'm using a bean(SpellCheck)in my JSP(SpellPro.jsp). I've kept the bean class in the 'servlets' direstory and jsp in the 'web' directory of my web application direstory. In the JSP I've written Class = "SpellCheck"
It is giving a error
unhandeled error:
"com.sun.jspException unable to compile Class for JSP"
Can anybody help me with how where should I put the bean class, paths etc.

Actually I�m working with WebLogic but I think you shoul�d try to use class=... lower case.

No that's not working Marcos. I need to know is there anything I need to do other than putting the .JSP file in the web folder and .class files in the servlets folder and then adding the jsp in the web application.

It seems that you have put everything in the right place. JSP's in the web directory, Servlets and JavaBeans in the servlets directory.
Just some thoughts,
Is SpellCheck inside a package, if it is you will need to state this in the useBean tag.
<jsp:useBean id="spellCheck" type="packageA.SpellCheck" scope="request">


Make sure that the servlet directory is in the classpath for your web application.
I really can't diagnose the problem without more detail.

If you want you may send me the code for your application than I�ll pachage it in a war file and will test it in WebLogic as soon as I have it working I�ll send to you.

Hi Julio/Marcos,
Thanks for your help here.
Let me give you all the files I'm using here.
See I have my .JSP(wordpro.jsp) and HTML(spelling.html) files in
and I have my .class file for the bean in
C:\websphere\appserver\hosts\default_host\itsoservjsp\servlets directory
Julio I'm writing as well as mailing you the files.
JSP file(wordpro.jsp)
<jsp:useBean id="help" scope="session" class="SpellCheck" />
<jsp:setProperty name="help" property="*"/>
<body>You entered the input, <b> <%= request.getParameter("word") %></b><br>
The processed output is :<br>
<%= Integer.parseInt(request.getParameter("mode"))==1 ? help.reverse() :""+help.check() %>
HTML file(spelling.html)
<TITLE> Untitled Document</TITLE>
<form action = "wordpro.jsp" method = "POST">
Enter word :
<Input type = "text" name = "word">
<select name = "Mode">
<option value = "1" selected>Reverse</option>
<option value = "2" > SpellCheck</option>
<input type="submit" name= "Go" value = "Submit">
bean file SpellCheck.java
* This bean encapsulates the functionality to spell check a String
public class SpellCheck {
private String word;
public SpellCheck() {}
Method to reverse the string uses
@return the reversed String
public String reverse() {
return (new StringBuffer(word).reverse()).toString();
Checks the spelling of the word.This method has no body, and just
returns true for the example
@return boolean, true if the spelling is right
public boolean check() {
return true;

* Access method for the word property.
* @return the current value of the word property
public String getWord() {
return word;
* Sets the value of the word property.
* @param aWord the new value of the word property
public void setWord(String aWord) {
word = aWord;

Error I'm getting
