Hi all,
This is my jsp page resultlog.jsp :

it throws this error :
I tried putting log statements in com.a.bean.searchbean class' retrieve method. I am sure the command doesn't even reach to searchbean class. any idea ?

This is failing at the parse JSP step so of course it never gets to the bean. I would pay real close attention to the syntax around line 6, column 35.

Are you sure it doesn't work? If I take out the useBean and use nothing for the HTML body it works fine for me, cut and pasted from the "view plain" link in your code block.
