Greeting's Ranchers,

I created in bean class RegistrationActionForm within WEB-INF/Classes and tried using jsp:useBean Tag, I got the jsp compilation error that the code contains unresolved reference RegistrationActionForm, I think container could not locate the class.

But when I packaged the class within com.foo, the _jsp code was compiled successfully.

Can anyone tell me why?

Thanks,

Naveen

in jsp if you use no package(default package)the compiler will throw exception.so it is must to put class in package.

Package is not necessary for JavaBeans.

Why the compiler throws an exception? I'm using tomcat 5.0, is it mandatory or a bug?

Yes, the beans need to be in a package. Tomcat started to enforce that in version 5.

It's good practice anyway! I've seen very odd behavior before when classes aren't in packages!
