Subject Cannot create bean of class riddles.Riddler
Date Mon, 07 May 2001 00:34:36 GMT
I know someone posted a message with a problem similar to this about a month

try {
    riddler = (riddles.Riddler)
Beans.instantiate(this.getClass().getClassLoader(), "riddles.Riddler");
} catch (Exception exc) {
    throw new ServletException (" Cannot create bean of class
