My understanding is that the jsp:usebean tag should instantiate a bean if it can not find it. However the code generated from jps in wsad 5.1 throws an execption in that case. Is this wrong or am I misunderstanding. I came across this after I realized that usebean tags failed unless I used the IDE to generate them.

// end
// begin [file="/iteratorTest.jsp";from=(25,0);to=(26,53)]
test.stubs.iterator.TestList tableTest = null;
boolean _jspx_specialtableTest = false;
synchronized (session) {
tableTest= (test.stubs.iterator.TestList)
if (tableTest == null)
throw new java.lang.InstantiationException ("bean tableTest not found within scope ");
if(_jspx_specialtableTest == true) {
// end
// HTML // begin [file="/iteratorTest.jsp";from=(26,53);to=(27,0)]

I've run into this before, too. Basically, it's a misunderstanding of which attributes to specify on the useBean tag -- which, since I've run into it too, I have to say is completely understandable!

In order for it to actually instantiate it, make sure that your useBean tag specifies the class attribute. Type alone doesn't cut it. Here's the key...

"If you use type without class or beanName, no bean is instantiated. The package and class name are case sensitive."

@see the JSP syntax ref : http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/syntax/1.2/syntaxref1217.html#8865
