you mean the class file is in web folder which under com/example ?

try this : <form method=”POST” action=”${pageContext.request.contextPath}SelectBeer.do”>

I'm suspicious of the quotes in the HTML page--what did you use to create the file?

My suspicions are even *more* aroused by the nature of the error message--see all those special, URL-encoded characters? See in your post how the quotes in the JSP code are different than in the Java code?

Boo ya!

Excellent catch man..
i created that file in notepad...
i don't know why that was a problem (different quotes in different editors.)
it works now...after i changed quotes in textpad.

Chalk up another victory over those accursed MS "smart" punctuation characters.
