Property not found message

I'm very new to java. What I want to do is the following :

I created a field called newsletter in the DB. Cause I want learn to understand Java, I took over a field called female. This declares if the user is female or male. The field is set to BIT and can contain a NULL.

this works well. The only problem I have is, that it shows up with this error :

Caused by javax.el.ELException with message: "/layout/inc/community/profile/profileAbout.xhtml: Property 'newsletter' not found on type com.server.entity.application.User

I wrote this code to com.server.entity.application.User

private Boolean newsletter;

public void setNewsletter(Boolean newsletter)
this.newsletter = newsletter;

public Boolean getNewsletter()
return newsletter;

This is the code to display the field :

<s:div styleClass="clear margin15bot" />
<p class="blue bold">#{currentUserHome.instance.newsletter ? 'nein' : 'ja'}</p>
<hr class="strategyHR margin3NS" />
<p class="medBlueGrey">Newsletter abbonieren</p>

Hope somebody can help me with this issue.

Welcome to the Ranch

That question is too difficult for “beginning”, so I shall move it. Not sure where, and it might be moved again. Let’s try HTML first.
I agree. Here's the link:
