JSP with Apache on WinXP

I have written simple bean with jsp running on tomacat win winXP

the import statement in the code is as follows
<%@ page import="business.User, data.UserIO" %>

They have been compiled and placed in appropriate directories.
The following errors are reported.

Any help regarding this is appreciated...

The error reported is below

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

An error occurred at line: 10 in the jsp file: /javaWjsp/show_mail.jsp

Where do you places the file User.class and UserIO.class?
The files should be palced in the classpath folder ../WEB-INF/classes/business/User.class and ../WEB-INF/classes/datas/UserIO.class

Are you sure that those class files exits at correct locations?

According to me the problem is even if the have placed the class file u need to have them in there respective packages. I think those package folders are missing just check that.

There Must be a folder named business and datas or data (u are not clear as u are importing data.UserIO.class but exception says datas.UserIO.class) inside the classes folder which is inside the WEB-INF folder.

Check that and get back.

Thank You.
