I have got an error in the following error in the below program:
DisplayAllUsersAction.java:49: cannot find symbol
symbol : method setAttribute(java.lang.String,java.util.ArrayList)
location: interface javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest
request.setAttribute("users", list);
Note: DisplayAllUsersAction.java uses unchecked or unsafe operations.
Note: Recompile with -Xlint:unchecked for details.
1 error

package strutsTutorial;
import org.apache.commons.logging.Log;
import org.apache.commons.logging.LogFactory;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import org.apache.struts.action.Action;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionForm;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionForward;
import org.apache.struts.action.ActionMapping;
import java.util.*;

import java.sql.Connection;
import javax.sql.DataSource;
import java.sql.PreparedStatement;
import java.sql.*;
import java.io.Serializable;

public class DisplayAllUsersAction extends Action
public ActionForward execute(ActionMapping mapping, ActionForm form, HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws Exception



DataSource dataSource = getDataSource(request, "userDB");

Connection conn = dataSource.getConnection();
Statement statement = conn.createStatement();

ResultSet rs = statement.executeQuery("select FIRST_NAME, LAST_NAME, EMAIL from USER2");
ArrayList list = new ArrayList();
String firstName = rs.getString(1);
String lastName = rs.getString(2);
String email = rs.getString(3);
User user = new User();
if (list.size() > 0)
request.setAttribute("users", list);
catch(Exception e)

return mapping.findForward("success");

//return mapping.findForward("success");

Can anyone help me in this regard?
