Hi there guys,
I'm trying to run some JSPs here and it's creating a problem. I'm using Tomcat 4.1.12 as my server.
There is an application which starts by calling the file mail.jsp. This file links to a class file WebMailBean.class. I've placed the class file in the directory:
TOMCAT_HOME\webapps\WebMail\classes
This is the error I'm getting when I call mail.jsp in IE. There are many more occurances of the error, but I've just shown the first two. I think it's not finding my class file or something:

----------------------------------
An error occurred at line: 2 in the jsp file: /mail.jsp
Generated servlet error:
[javac] Compiling 1 source file
D:\Tomcat4.1\work\Standalone\localhost\WebMail\mail_jsp.java:42: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class WebMailBean
location: class org.apache.jsp.mail_jsp
WebMailBean webMail = null;
^

location: class org.apache.jsp.mail_jsp
webMail = (WebMailBean) pageContext.getAttribute("webMail", PageContext.SESSION_SCOPE);
^
-----------------------------------------
And here is my mail.jsp:
---------------------------------
<%@ page language='java' %>
<jsp:useBean id='webMail' class='WebMailBean' scope='session'/>
<jsp:setProperty name='webMail' property='protocol'/>
<jsp:setProperty name='webMail' property='host'/>
<jsp:setProperty name='webMail' property='port'/>
<jsp:setProperty name='webMail' property='user'/>
<jsp:setProperty name='webMail' property='password'/>
<%-- Is the user logged in to the store? --%>
<% if(!webMail.isConnected()) { %>

<jsp:forward page='login.jsp'/>

<% } %>
<html>
<head><title>WebMail</title></head>
<body>
<%-- Does a command need to be executed? --%>
<%
if(request.getParameter("command") != null) {
webMail.doCommand(request);
}
%>
<%-- Change the current folder, if necessary. --%>
<jsp:setProperty name='webMail' property='folder'/>
<%-- Display the messages in this folder. --%>
<h2><jsp:getProperty name='webMail' property='folderName'/></h2>
<a href='write.jsp?to=&subject='>Compose</a> |
<a href='logout.jsp'>Logout</a>
<form method='post' action='<%= request.getRequestURI() %>'>
Folder:
<select name='folder'>
<% String[] folderNames = webMail.getFolderNames();
for(int i = 0; i < folderNames.length; ++i) { %>
<option><%= folderNames[i] %></option>
<% } %>
</select>
<input type='submit' value='Go'>
</form>
<% int messageCount = webMail.getMessageCount();
if(messageCount == 0) { %>
<h1>No messages</h1>
<% } else { %>
<form method='post' action='mail.jsp'>
<table border='1'>

<tr>
<td>Check</td>
<td>Date</td>
<td>From</td>
<td>Subject</td>
<td>Size</td>
</tr>

<% webMail.setMessage(0); %>
<% for(int i = 1; webMail.getNextMessage(); ++i) { %>

<tr>
<td><input type='checkbox' name='number'
value='<%= webMail.getMessageNumber() %>'></td>
<td><jsp:getProperty name='webMail'
property='messageSentDate'/></td>
<td><jsp:getProperty name='webMail'
property='messageFrom'/></td>
<td>
<a href='<%= "read.jsp?message=" +
webMail.getMessageNumber() %>'>
<jsp:getProperty name='webMail'
property='messageSubject'/>
</a>
</td>
<td><jsp:getProperty name='webMail'
property='messageSize'/></td>
</tr>
<% } %>
</table>

<input type='submit' name='command' value='Delete'>
<input type='submit' name='command' value='Copy'>
<input type='submit' name='command' value='Move'>

<select name='to'>

<option value=''>Selected Messages To:</option>
<% String[] otherFolders = webMail.getOtherFolderNames();
for(int i = 0; i < otherFolders.length; ++i) { %>

<option><%= otherFolders[i] %></option>
<% } %>
</select>
</form>

<% } %>
</body>
</html>
-------------------------------------
Thanks for your patience guys. Appreciate it.
Cheers,

Aliasger -- Your JSP is trying to pull the object from session. Unless you specifically put it there, it won't be found.

hello Aliasger,
One possible cause of the error is that you have not packaged your WebMailBean to something like com.WebMailBean). This seem to be a requirement with tomcat version 4.1.x. Unpackaged beans work fine with earlier tomcat versions (e.g. 4.0) though.

Try by keeping the classes under
TOMCAT_HOME\webapps\classes\[PACKAGE_ROOT]
