i have a single java file name Person.java with:


UsingBean.jsp


upon running on server,i get the following Exception:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: /UsingBean.jsp(10,0) The value for the useBean class attribute com.example.Employee is invalid.

Employee is not visible outside the package com.example, so the web-container cannot instantiate it

Making Employee a public class solves the case.

Doesn't the name of the public class in a Java file have to match name of the file itself? Try making the Employee class public like Fritz said. If you are still having problems, try changing the name of the file to Employee.java instead of Person.java. It is probably better practice to have them as separate file anyway.
