Hello All,
I create a jsp under tomcat and put it to webapps/Root directory.
It runs fine.
Then I created a bean class for the jsp page. Where shoud I put the compiled class? I put it to Root/Web-inf/classes. it still complains it could not find the class.
Thanks

here are the files:

getname.jsp

<HTML>
<BODY>
<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION="SaveName.jsp">
What's your name? <INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME=username SIZE=20><BR>
What's your e-mail address? <INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME=email SIZE=20><BR>
What's your age? <INPUT TYPE=TEXT NAME=age SIZE=4>
<P><INPUT TYPE=SUBMIT>
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>

UserData.java
public class UserData {
String username;
String email;
int age;

public void setUsername( String value )
{
username = value;
}

public void setEmail( String value )
{
email = value;
}

public void setAge( int value )
{
age = value;
}

public String getUsername() { return username; }

public String getEmail() { return email; }

public int getAge() { return age; }
}


SaveName.jsp
<jsp:useBean id="user" class="UserData" scope="session"/>
<jsp:setProperty name="user" property="*"/>
<HTML>
<BODY>
<A HREF="NextPage.jsp">Continue</A>
</BODY>
</HTML>

NextPage.jsp

<jsp:useBean id="user" class="UserData" scope="session"/>
<HTML>
<BODY>
You entered<BR>
Name: <%= user.getUsername() %><BR>
Email: <%= user.getEmail() %><BR>
Age: <%= user.getAge() %><BR>
</BODY>
</HTML>


The error I got is:

I believe you must place the javabean in a package.
