How to use usebaen to connect to input data bean

Hi Guys

I am trying to use a usebean tag to connect to a  input data bean

Here is my code
--------------------------------
<wcbase:useBean id="SRSDB" classname="com.srs.common.reporting.beans.SRSReportingDataBean">
<% SRSDB.setResourceBundle("com.srs.common.properties.SRSReportingMessages"); %>
<% SRSDB.setSqlQuery("CATALOG"); %>
<% String[] reportResult = SRSDB.getReportResultSet(); %>
</wcbase:useBean>
----------------------------------------------

somehow this gives me a null pointer exception error, but if I try scriptlet code to connect to a data bean it works. Would you giuys know what I am doing wrong in the usebean code, Thanks

-------------------------------------------

<% System.out.println("TEST Before");
SRSReportingDataBean reportingDb = new SRSReportingDataBean();
reportingDb.setSqlQuery("CATALOG");
reportingDb.setResourceBundle("com.srs.common.properties.SRSReportingMessages");//USER_RESOURCE_BUNDLE
com.ibm.commerce.beans.DataBeanManager.activate(reportingDb, request, response);
System.out.println("Test "+reportingDb.getReportResultSet()[0]);
String []reportResult=reportingDb.getReportResultSet();
%>
----------------------------------------------------

2 differences that I can see are that you set the query before setting the resource-bundle (though I doubt if that has a dependency) and that you call DataBeanManager.activate () before calling getReportResultSet.
