I am new to JSP, i m trying to build a simple application, using beans. This application is made with reference to Sun's Tutorials. I am using Tomcat to run JSP. The problem is with an error which i am not able to figure out. It says that the Bean class is not found, although its placed in the WEB-INF folder. I have used the package approach, but the error still persist. Here are the errors, first is the exception report and the secnod one is the root cause;



type Exception report

> It says that the Bean class is not found, although its placed in the WEB-INF folder

is the class in:

  WEB-INF/classes/your/package/NameHandler.class

?

It needs to be in WEB-INF/classes, not just WEB-INF

Or, if it is in a jar, put the jar into

and your tomcat context is set to:

    E:\JSP Learning\Using Beans\

?

Can you try a directory without spaces in it?  (Java doesn't like spaces in filenames as a general rule) :-(

If that doesn't help, can you post your bean code?

yes my tomcat context is set to;
E:\JSPLearning

i have removed the spaces, UsingBeans is a folder inside JSPLearning, i have not mentioned UsingBeans in the context. My bean code is as follows.

package hello;

public class NameHandler{

private String username;

public NameHandler(){
      username=null;}

public void setUserName(String name){
      username = name;}

public String getUserName(){
      return username;}

}

E:\JSP Learning\WEB-INF\classes\hello\NameHandler.class

but the first error still persist,

that's a different error, surely?

> Cannot find any information on property 'username' in a bean of type 'hello.NameHandler'

You have called it

"userName" in the bean, and (I'm guessing) "username" in the JSP ;-)

See?  Capital "N" in name for the get and set method ;-)

when you use JSP to get an attribute (or set one) using JSP tags, it uses reflection to call the correct method name.  So for getters and setters, if you have a String variable called

    myVariable

then you need to write a method which looks like

  public void getMyVariable()

and one which looks like

  public String setMyVariable( String var )

Notice how you make the first letter after "get" or "set" capital.

So for "username", you need to write:

  public String getUsername(){

and

  public void setUsername(String name){

Notice, the capital "U" (as it is after "get" and "set"), but the lowercase "n", as you want to call your variable "username", NOT "userName"

Then,

    <jsp:getProperty name="username" property="username"/>

will work :-)

>  hey, i had two errors, if u look at my first post.

Yeah, both those errors are because tomcat couldn't find the "NameHandler" class...  The error you posted just now, is because it cannot find the method "getUsername" (or setUsername), as you had a capital "N" in the method names

Hope this explains it a bit better!!

Yay!  Glad it worked :-)

When you get an exception like the first one you posted, the "root cause" is often more helpful than the exception it shows first!

    java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: NameHandler

Showed us that tomcat couldn't locate the class (that's how I knew the class was in the wrong place) ;-)

Good luck with it all!!
