You should grab some good book on programming JSP and Servlets.

    I assume you know Java.  As far as the error is concerned it don't
seem to be because of a class is not properly imported. The syntax for
importing class in JSP page is correct assuming WebAppName is the
class you are importing. The compiles class files in the proper
package structure is to be put in
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/mywebapp/WEB-INF/classes folder. Then restart

    You can find a sample web application in the
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/examples folder.
