I am just learning struts .I made a very small application in struts .
My application flow is like this
The first page ask for username and is submitted to
It invokes action form in which i match username and password if it is incorrect then i forward it to another page (temp.jsp)>If it is correct .then i forward it to temp1.jsp where i write code
<html:text property="username"/>
it throws error following error
If i remove that line it works fine
javax.servlet.ServletException: Cannot find bean org.apache.struts.taglib.html.BEAN in any scope

Don't forget that all <html:xxx> tags have to be enclosed in an <html:form></html:form> tag set. In your <html:form> tag, make sure that the action attribute specifies the action path for an action that is defined in struts-config.xml. This action must be associated with an ActionForm bean, and the ActionForm bean must have a password property.

If you've done all these things and it still doesn't work, show us:

1-your struts-config.xml file.
2-temp.jsp and temp1.jsp
3-your ActionForm bean for both and your ActionForm bean for your second action, whatever that is.
