I tried the custom "advice" tag example from chapter 9 of HFSJ(pg.467). But am getting exception as : unable to compile class for jsp. AdvisorTagHandler cannot be resolved to a type.

I have 3 files here
1. myLib.tld




2. TestCustomTag.jsp


3.AdvisorTagHandler.java(AdvisorTagHandler.class is in the classes directory)



the java file compiles. all the files are at right places. what am i doing wrong ?

If I were you, I'd put the AdvisorTagHandler in a package. Leaving class files in the default package does not guarantee a correct behaviour.

now it works. i was lazy to put a one line package statement. . But good i left that , else i wouldn't have known what you told:

thanks Christophe.
