Hi All,
I have the following code in my jsp , when i try to execute it , i get an exception in tomcat that it was not able to compile it as
it was not able to resolve the class name or Type:
HSSFWorkbook ,HSSFRow , HSSFCell and POIFSFileSystem
I have these files in my build path (class path) and i can execute the code below (exactly same) if i execute it in a java class instead of jsp.
it runs and gives me the result as well, but in scriptlet it does not.
what am i doing wrong?
-Thanks.

The POI jar file needs to be in the WEB-INF/lib directory of your web application.
