Tomcat 4.0.1 - cannot create bean of class

Hi,
I am trying to instantiate a very simple bean on Tomcat in a JSP using the directive... <jsp:useBean id="sessionBean" scope="session" class="InfoBean" /> Everytime I try to run it, I get the following exception... javax.servlet.ServletException: Cannot create bean of class InfoBean Any idea why this is happening... The bean has a default constructor.
I have deployed my Beans package in the WEB-INF/classes directory for this program.
This is the useBean tag copied directly from my JSP: <jsp:useBean id="guest" class="Beans.Guest_Bean" scope="session"/>
FYI: This was working using tomcat 3.2.x
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Francois.

Some containers require that the class be in a package. if you don't have one, create one.
class="yourPackageName.InfoBean"

Are your bean classes in the same WEB-INF/classes directory as the webapp in which you want to use them?

Yes,
Everything is under the same webapp. Bean classes are kept in web-inf\classes\beans and there's a package stmt: Beans in the javabeans itself. Seems like I can get to the bean(no more package not found error) but obviously can't create it.
Below is the error generated by tomcat: just the 1st line
javax.servlet.ServletException: Guest_Bean
at org.apache.jasper.runtime.PageContextImpl.handlePageException(PageContextImpl.java:457)
In server.xml, I have the context of Beans:
<Context path="/myServlets/Beans" docBase="Beans" debug="0" privileged="true"/>
Seems like there's something wrong with the context.. What am I missing here?
Francois.
