I've got two comments : 1. class="com.examulator.userBean" should be class="com.examulator.UserBean" 2. I'd be better to use <%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" %> (JSTL 1.1)
If you don't mind, could you please try to contact the author about that ? Thank you.
I recommend writing the code and testing the code. Create the userBean class and directory etc etc. It's an excellent way to learn. You can check if the value has been set with the following JSTL code.
