i encounter a very strange problem. Every time I want to test a JSP page that imports a JavaBean, I receive the following error message about import declaration.
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Unable to compile class for JSP
An error occurred at line: 1 in the jsp file: /addressDisplay.jsp
Generated servlet error:
[javac] Compiling 1 source file
C:\java\plateforme\tomcat\work\Standalone\localhost\chapter14\addressDisplay_jsp.java:7: '.' expected
I'm don't see what is wrong in the declaration of my JSP page:
the code of the bean AdresseBean is the following:
Really I don't understand what's happening.
I would be very grateful for any assistance.
Thanks for your response.
I have tried without the import statement and now there's a problem because the class is not found:
C:\java\plateforme\tomcat\work\Standalone\localhost\chapter14\addressDisplay_jsp.java:42: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class AddressBean
location: class org.apache.jsp.addressDisplay_jsp
AddressBean address = null;
by the way, are you sure we don't need to import the bean, even if it is not part of package?
The code I test come from source code of book SCWCD Exam Study Kit, and the import statement is right in the page JSP.
My Bean class is in WEB-INF/classes directory ...
