jsp bean problem

  Asked By: Colleen    Date: Jul 07    Category: Java    Views: 604

I use apache-tomcat-6.0.13 and I'm trying to use Beans in my jsp page
, but unfortunately I got this error:

An error occurred at line: 23 in the jsp file: /index.jsp
NewBean cannot be resolved to a type

here is my jsp page:

jsp:useBean id="theBean" class="NewBean" />
int j = theBean.doubleIt(3);
out.println("j is: "+j); %></p>

and here is my simple bean class:

public class NewBean {
public int doubleIt(int number) {
return 2 * number;

I should tell that I have compiled the bean class and placed it into
WEB-INF\classes directory .
I dont know whether I shoukld add somthing in web.xml or not.

You should provide packaging for your bean  class and it will work !
