Using an array from a Bean in JSP

I am attempting to learn JSP to rewrite our company website.  One thing that we would like to do is be able to show customers their recent activity on their account.  For a demo I have been trying to create a servlet that loads 10 numbers into a bean, and then a JSP that pulls those numbers back out.  I have a working JSP with a single value but haven't been able to figure out how to get the array out.

The way I am currently thinking of using the servlet and the bean are below.  
Sample Servlet code:
 
for(int i = 0;i<10;i++){
    myBean.setNextNumber(i)
}
_______________________________________________________
 
Sample bean:
 
public void setNextNumber(int i){
    Numbers[i] = i;
}
 
public int getNextNumber(int i){
    return Numbers[i];
}
________________________________________

I suggest that you use conventions. See
http://www.it-careernet.com/itc/javabeantechnology.htm#Indexed%20Properties   
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/javabeans/properties/indexed.html 
In your bean you should use,  
       private int[] numbers;
       public int getNumbers(int index){
                                                            return this.numbers[index];
       }
       public void setNumbers(int index, int number){
                                                                                this.numbers[index] = number;
       }
       public int[] getNumbers(){
                                                return this.numbers;
       }
       public void setNumbers(int[] numbers){
                                                                     this.numbers = numbers;
       }
In your servlet use ,
                    MyBean myBean = new MyBean();
                    for(int i = 0;i<10;i++){
                                            myBean.numbers[i] = i;
                    }
                    request.setAttribute("myBean", myBean);  
    or you could use session scope
                    session.setAttribute("myBean", mybean);
In your JSP use  
                ${myBean.numbers[0]}
                ${myBean.numbers[1]}
