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.

Once again go to examples application in tthe tomcat webapps folder and the go to jsp there - most of them use classes - chek out how they are imported, like in theis example for calculator for instance:

<HTML>
<!--  
  Copyright (c) 1999 The Apache Software Foundation.  All rights 
  reserved.
-->
<HEAD><TITLE> 
	Calendar: A JSP APPLICATION
</TITLE></HEAD>


<BODY BGCOLOR="white">

<%@ page language="java" import="cal.*" %>
<jsp:useBean id="table" scope="session" class="cal.TableBean" />

<%
	table.processRequest(request);
	if (table.getProcessError() == false) {
%>

<!-- html table goes here -->
<CENTER>
<TABLE WIDTH=60% BGCOLOR=yellow CELLPADDING=15>
<TR>
<TD ALIGN=CENTER> <A HREF=cal1.jsp?date=prev> prev </A>
<TD ALIGN=CENTER> Calendar:<%= table.getDate() %></TD>
<TD ALIGN=CENTER> <A HREF=cal1.jsp?date=next> next </A>
</TR>
</TABLE>

<!-- the main table -->
<TABLE WIDTH=60% BGCOLOR=lightblue BORDER=1 CELLPADDING=10>
<TR>
<TH> Time </TH>
<TH> Appointment </TH>
</TR>
<FORM METHOD=POST ACTION=cal1.jsp>
<%
	for(int i=0; i<table.getEntries().getRows(); i++) {
	   cal.Entry entr = table.getEntries().getEntry(i);	
%>
	<TR>
	<TD> 
	<A HREF=cal2.jsp?time=<%= entr.getHour() %>>
		<%= entr.getHour() %> </A>
	</TD>
	<TD BGCOLOR=<%= entr.getColor() %>>
	<%= entr.getDescription() %>
	</TD> 
	</TR>
<%
	}
%>
</FORM>
</TABLE>
<BR>

<!-- footer -->
<TABLE WIDTH=60% BGCOLOR=yellow CELLPADDING=15>
<TR>
<TD ALIGN=CENTER>  <%= table.getName() %> : 
		     <%= table.getEmail() %> </TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>
</CENTER>

<%
	} else {
%>
<font size=5>
	You must enter your name and email address correctly.
</font>
<%
	}
%>

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


<html>
      <head>
            <title>Using a JavaBean</title>
      </head>
      <body>
      <%@ page language="java" import="*" %>
      <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()%>
      </body>
</html>

Open in new window



output in the browser:

Using a JavaBean
I own a Ferrari Now I own a Ferrari
