in page, e.g. <jsp:useBean id="bic" class="BallPen" scope="request"/> in servlet.e.g. BallPen bp = (BallPen)request.getAttribute("bic"); hope this helps. [ January 17, 2003: Message edited by: boyet silverio ]
You can directly create an instance of the bean and start using the methods in the bean. Make sure you import the package before you access the methods. import xxx.beans.color; ... ... Color myColor = new Color(); // to set the bean values myColor.setRed("23");myColor.setBlue("55"); myColor.setGreen("66"); // to get the bean values String red = myColor.getRed("23"); String blue= myColor.setBlue("55"); String green = myColor.setGreen("66"); That should work!!!
Actually, you can be "MVS-like", but as I've been occasionally known to explain, TRUE MVC isn't possible under the restrictions of HTTP. Actually, the bean property tags in JSPs do little more than resolve to the same set/get methods you invoke in servlets. And after all, that's the defining characteristic of a JavaBean - a component object whose properties are accessed with get/set methods. You can also do MVC-like (Model 2, to be precise) using the Jakarta Struts framework. See http://jakarta.apache.org/struts .
