The error I get is this

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

An error occurred at line: 1 in the jsp file: /Demo/test.jsp

Generated servlet error:
    [javac] Compiling 1 source file

/usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.30/work/Standalone/serrika.org/_/Demo/test_jsp.java:7: cannot resolve symbol

I have only ftp access to the above server


this is test.jsp

<%@ page language="java" import="Demo.*"  import="java.util.*" import="java.sql.*" %>
<jsp:useBean id="inc" scope="session" class="Demo.common" />
<jsp:setProperty name="inc" property="*" />

and this is the content of common class under Demo package


package Demo;

import java.util.*;
import java.sql.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.util.regex.*;
import java.security.SecureRandom;
import java.security.MessageDigest;
import java.security.NoSuchAlgorithmException;
public class common  {

      String name="";
      String pass="";
      public Connection con;
      public Statement st;
      String hashval="";
      String prefix="";
      String join_dt="";

}

etc and etc

Please advise what is the best way to solve the above problem with ONLY ftp access ?

Or if it is unsolvable via ftp access only what instructions must I give to my hosting provider for solving this problem ?
