I keep getting this error.
No getter method for property username of bean org.apache.struts.taglib.html.Bean
I did read all the comments on Case sensitive name and have made sure that i follow the rules. But i still get the same error. Here is my clip of code. Please help. I have spend enuf time on this and cant think of anything else.
//************ Java Bean
public final class WizSearchForm extends ActionForm {
private String action = "WizardSearch";
private String username = null;
public String getAction()
return (this.action);
public void setAction(String action)
this.action = action;
public String getUsername() {
return (this.username);
public void setUsername(String username) {
this.username = username;
// ************ JSP Form
<td align="right">
<bean:message key="prompt.username"/>
<td><html:text property="username" size="16" /></td>

The JSP and ActionForm look fine, so it must be that the form is trying to submit to an action that uses some other form-bean.
