maybe a silly question:
do you have a import-statement for your classes?

Subject: Re: setAttribute/getAttribute problem

    I stumbled into the same problem yesterday without any luck. Apparently
using request.set/getAtttribute is pretty much useless in my experience. I
had to stick the data in the session instead using session.set/getAttribute.
Not a very attractive solution, but it works anyway.
