trying to use nested tags

Hi, all.
I have a jsp which is supposed to reflect a nested bean structure, where package object has a nested request object.
The error I get is: "Null property value for 'request'".
This is the jsp code:
<nested:form action="/Package" focus="packageNumber">
Package Number: <nested:text property="packageNumber"/>
Package Name: <nested:text property="packageName"/>
<nested:nest property="request">
TR Number: <nested:text property="requestNumber"/>
User Name: <nested:text property="userName"/>

The ActionForm class has property request of type Request, for which there
is a setter a getter.
If I take the request bean out from jsp, the jsp displays fine. With the request bean in, I get the above mentioned error.
Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

I am not a specialist in JSP, except for some dabbling, but generally this might happen if your reference is pointing to null, that is, if it has not been pointed to a request object. Since you mention nested tags, could it be that there is a valid request object, but it just isn't passed or assigned into the context of the nested tag you are calling it from?

P.S. Do you check your private messages?
