jsp not running...

I have CarBean.jsp at:
...Tomcat 5.0\webapps\begjsp-ch04\CarBean.jsp

Its content is:


<html>
      <head>
            <title>Using a JavaBean</title>
      </head>
      <body>
            <h2>Using a JavaBean</h2>
            <% myCar = new CarBean();%>
            I own a <%=myCar.getMake()%>
            <%myCar.setMake("Ferrari");%>
            Now I own a <%=myCar.getMake();%>
      </body>
</html>

---------------------
the associated CarBean class is compiled and put in the following folder:
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\begjsp-ch04\WEB-INF\classes

Its content is:

public class CarBean {

      public CarBean() {
      }

      private String make = "Ford";

      public String getMake() {

            return make;
      }

      public void setMake(String make) {


            this.make = make;

      }

}

----------------------------
I am using the following url to open this page:

http://localhost:8080/begjsp-ch04/CarBean.jsp

It fails. What is wrong with this? Can you please debug?

Thank you.

Put this myCar.jsp (see below)  into webapps/examples

Put your CarBean.class into examples/WEB-INF/classes

and then
http://localhost:8080/examples/myCar.jsp

should work

Maybe you would need to reastrt Tomcat

      <jsp:useBean id="car" scope="session" class="CarBean" />


            <h2>Using a JavaBean</h2>
           
            I own a <%=car.getMake()%>
            <%car.setMake("Ferrari");%>
            Now I own a <%=car.getMake()%>
