My problem is accessing a variable I'm defining in the action, and using it in a scriptlet to write an imagemap straight into the JSP.

This defines the variable for the JSP. That part works fine. However, when I try to use it in a scriptlet, it turns up as null.

change your <bean:define>tag to:

<bean:define id="info" type="org.jfree.chart.ChartRenderingInfo" scope="page" name="graphForm" property="info"/>

If you do this, your scriptlet should work.

You could also try getting the info bean directly from the ActionForm, as in:
