A Design Question.

Consider the following scenario. I have
1. A JSP generated HTML Page
2. A Controller Servlet
3. A Form Bean &
4. An Action Bean.
5. A result JSP
My request will go from 1 to 3 via 2.
3 will instantiate 4. 4(Action bean) would actually do some DB process and return a Vector.
5, the JSP page should get that result and iterate for view.
I should not use scriptlets in the page strictly. If i try to use <jsp:usebean >, then it instantiates a new object of 4 and i'm getting a null Vector. How can I achieve this?
