Subject Re: Placement of Java Bean [fixed typo]

I did not read your posting very carfully so be warned:

my first hack at this would be to place the class in a package

package com.complusdata.beans;
public class FormBean
then when compiled it should be in the WEB-INF/classes/com/complusdata/beans 

then in your page <jsp:useBean id="formHandler" class="com.complusdata.beans.FormBean"
  <jsp:setProperty name="formHandler" property="*"/>

see if that helps

Hi all.

I'm still trying to get my Form Validation to work.  The action of my form
is FormValidate.jsp.  Here I use a bean called FormBean.  My code here is:

<jsp:useBean id="formHandler" class="FormBean" scope="request">
  <jsp:setProperty name="formHandler" property="*"/>

When I try to test the form, I click submit and no matter what I try I get
the same errors:

org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP

An error occurred at line: 2 in the jsp file:

Generated servlet error:
    [javac] Compiling 1 source file

m/_/CCPayments/28/ cannot resolve symbol
symbol  : class FormBean 
location: class org.apache.jsp.FormValidate_jsp
      FormBean formHandler = null;

I can manually compile the FormBean, so I don't think the problem is with
that file. is being written to the work directory.
The problem seems to be that can't be compiled because
it can't find the class FormBean.class.

I'm not exactly sure where I am supposed to place FormBean in order for to find it.  I have tried in the same directory as my
jsp file.  I have tried in $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/.
Yet I keep getting the same errors.

Thanks in advance :)
