Hi,
This is a question from 2 days old java programmer! I want to create a simple jsp web application using net bean. here is the tasks I have done:
I created a jsp file. Here is its body. Its name is index.jsp.

<%@ page import = "HelloJava.HelloJavaBean" %>

<jsp:useBean id="helloJava" class="HelloJava.HelloJavaBean" scope="session"/>
<jsp:setProperty name="helloJava" property="*"/>


<%@page contentType="text/html"%>
<%@page pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>
<html>
<head><title>JSP Page</title></head>
<body>

<b>
<%= helloJava.GetAnswer() %>
</b>

</body>
</html>
************************************************

Then, I added  a java class to filesystem, named HelloJavaBean.java :
import java.util.*;

public class HelloJavaBean {

    int answer = 5;
   
    /** Creates a new instance of HelloJavaBean */
    public HelloJavaBean() {
    }
   
    public int GetAnswer()
    {
        return answer;
    }
   
}
*****************************************
I have trie to run this. But every time I got this error:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP
C:\Documents and Settings\Farshid\.netbeans\3.6\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.19_base\work\Catalina\localhost\hellojava\org\apache\jsp\index_jsp.java:6: package HelloJava does not exist
import HelloJava.HelloJavaBean;
                        ^

I have tried to fix it by adding this block to web configuration file:
    <servlet>
      <servlet-name>HelloJava.index_jsp</servlet-name>
      <servlet-class>HelloJava.index_jsp</servlet-class>
    </servlet>

but, nothing changed.  I have <welcome-file-list> tag in my web configuration file.

Please tell me what to do.

Thanks,
Farshid

add this line to the start of class HelloJavaBean

package HelloJava;

and then move the file HelloJavaBean.java from its location into an insider directory called HelloJava, be case sensitive

or

simply open ur jsp and modify

<%@ page import = "HelloJava.HelloJavaBean" %>

to

<%@ page import = "HelloJavaBean" %>

I dont really know if it matters, but isnt JavaBean convention to have the class like:

String answer

public void getAnswer()
{

}

Hi
petmagdy: package definition is already exist. I just forgot to copy it. Sorry.

Celdri: even if all the answer property is removed from class and jsp files, the error message remains unchanged! I think I should define the java file as a servlet for the project, or something likt that. I don't know too much about jsp and J2EE concepts.

Please provide me with the solution.

Oh, and you dont have to mess with web.xml, jsp or beans arent servlets so you dont have
to map them or anything.

This: <jsp:useBean id="helloJava" class="HelloJava.HelloJavaBean" scope="session"/>
Will find or create the Bean for you.. and this:
<jsp:setProperty name="helloJava" property="*"/>
wont work because your hellojava bean doesnt have a property called *. (I think)

However
<jsp:setProperty name="helloJava" property="answer" value="5"/>

this will store the value 5 in the bean helloJava.

Hmm, ok so are you using Tomcat?
if so, check that in your WEB-INF\classes folder
there is another folder called HelloJava and inside it
there must be a HelloJavaBean.class

Yes, I'm usign Tomcat. In fact I'm using built in Tomcat of NetBeans IDE. I tried all your instructions. But nothing changed. I removed the servlet mapping. And there is that class in WEB-INF folder. But, the error is the same.

Unless you have packed your application as a war file and uploaded into the webapps directory, under Tomcat, on server.xml configuration file, you need to setup the contect path of your application along with the filesystem path where your project files are located. Please see the allready deployed Tomcat applications configured into server.xml to see how needs to be done.

Hope this helps.

We need to know where exactl is that missing class, and why cant your web-app find it.
We need someone who has used Netbeans IDE before..
Myself, I use MyEclipse with Eclipse, fast deployment plataform, although somewhat tricky
to use.

I solved my problem. I was defining Packages without creating folders of them. In fact I am using java with .NET experiences.
Thank you Ovi and Celdric
