Problems running a simple Hello World JSP/Bean

I am trying to teach myself some JSP to see about redoing our company website sometime down the road.  I have installed apache tomcat and tested it with a simple servlet which ran fine.  Next I wanted to make a trial JSP page that uses a java bean to say hello world -- looked at a few tutorial and I cam up with this:

Java Structure:
Project Test
package my
Java file TestBean.java (code included below)
JSP file BeanTester.jsp (code included below)

I am using Jbuilder Turbo (eclipse based) IDE.  

I compile the file as  a war and deploy it to tomcat like I did the servlet which worked fine.

the resultant page that I get back is entirely blank -- I will post the source below as well.
I am not sure what I am doing wrong -- if it is tomcat that is set up wrong, the code is wrong somehow, or something else that I haven't even thought of.  
TestBean.java code:
 
package my;
 
public class TestBean {
	private String greeting = "Hello Wiorld";
	public String getWelcome(){
		return greeting;
	}
}
