Problem changing jsp property

I had in the jsp file tag input:

and since it didn't match the bean property: contactName I have changed it to

I have deployed and restarted the server, but still it seems to be that the server doesn't catch the change and doesn't care about contactName (it returns null while it's not).
I have also restarted the computer.
What else can I do to have it notice the change?

Which server you are using,

if you are using weblogic with some managed servers, Then you have to monitor the config.xml ( if you are deploying .ear file).

tell me what type of deployment you are going for?

Thanks and best regards,

Just about every web or application server will detect jsp changes dynamically (I know that Tomcat does). I suspect that you are not changing the correct file or you might not be changing it in the correct location. There is a slight chance that it is a browser caching issue. In both IE and Firefox, pressing CTRL + F5 will force a clean refresh.
