Hi all, i have a small query with reg. to content specified in page 360 of Head First Servlets & JSP.

The description is about the use of setProperty using the Property attribute with the value "*" means all the request param names with the same property name in bean will be set.

Questions
1) First on checking the type and class value used in <jsp:useBean> it's not possible to set the employee related details when considering the superclass is the reference type.?

2) In this case the employee related bean property won't be set, is it correct?

Thanks for your valuable time.

I'd never spotted that before - but I guess you're correct.

In the code, the Employee object would be held by a Person reference, which would not give you access to the EmpID variable.

(They do change it on the next page though before the working example)
