To me it looks like WebLogic is not spec compliant. It seems to require a
<jsp:useBean> action to define each bean used by <jsp:getProperty> actions
in the same page. That is *not* a requirement, according to the JSP 1.1
spec. The spec only says that the name attribute in <jsp:getProperty> must 
be the name of a bean created by some other action in the page, using the
<jsp:useBean> action as an example. In this case it's created by the 
<req:cookies> action, and that should work equally fine.

I suggest you report this as a bug to BEA. It's the only way we will ever
get the vendors to implement the spec correctly, and get the promise of
vendor independent applications.
