I'm currently learning JSP and i have an example in my book that i cant get working. I'm really stuck as to why. I'm using the latest Tomcat (5.5.17) and i havent changed any config files at all.
public class ch06_01 {
      public ch06_01() {}      
      public String msg() { return "Hello from JSP!" };

<%@ page import="ch06_01" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">
<title>Using a JavaBean</title>
      ch06_01 messenger = new ch06_01();

The java file compiles fine and i put it into the correct folder: tomcat/webapps/ch06/WEB-INF/classes/ch06_01.class

The CLASSPATH environment variable has been set to: C:\tomcat\common\lib\servlet-api.jar

And when i try and run the JSP i get an error:

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

---Generated servlet error:
---The import ch06_01 cannot be resolved

---An error occurred at line: 9 in the jsp file: /ch06_02.jsp
---Generated servlet error:
---ch06_01 cannot be resolved to a type

---An error occurred at line: 9 in the jsp file: /ch06_02.jsp
---Generated servlet error:
---ch06_01 cannot be resolved to a type

I would be very grateful if someone could point out why this isnt working.

Kind Regards,
