Can Not find bean in scope error when trying to display in jsp

R

Rudi

Hi Everyone,

I'm new with Struts and Hibernate. I'm running the code in Windows
using MyEclipse,
running on Tomcat bundled with MyEclipse 6.0. Also, the table Book is
in an Oracle
8.i database (connects fine), Struts version 1.1, and Hibernate
version 3.1.

I got something working that gets data from a Book Oracle table in
Hibernate and I can see the data con the console since I display it
with System.out in the Struts Action. I printed the record counts and
title of the Book records:

Query Size = 7
The title is Struts Book
The title is Java Book
The title is Java2 Book
The title is EJB Book
The title is JBoss for Beginners
The title is Using MyEclipse for cooking
The title is EJB for spending your weekends

The application consist of 2 simple pages, one jsp with a link, the
other jsp that is supposed to display the bookList. The bookList is
where I'm getting an error since it doesn't display the values. I get
an error:

SEVERE: Servlet.service() for servlet action threw exception
javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: Cannot find bean in any scope

Hibernate seems to be working fine since I get the data.

The problem seems to be with the bookList.jsp page and Struts.

I tried removing the nested writes and just having a tr and td
displaying text that says there are booklist values. That text was
successfully displayed. So my problem is the logic that iterates
through the values to try to write them to the jsp.

Can anyone please help?

The code is show below. Thanks in advance. :)

Hi Everyone,

I figured out my problem. I replaced the "nested" Strut tags in the
bookList.jsp
with plain "iterate" Strut tags and it worked.

The code inside the non-empty tags should read:

<logic:iterate name="bookListForm" property="books" id="book">
<tr>
<%-- print out the book informations --%>
<td><bean:write name="book" property="author" /></td>
<td><bean:write name="book" property="title" /></td>
<td><html:checkbox disabled="true" name="book"
property="available" />
</td>

<%-- print out the edit and delete link for each book --%>
<td><html:link action="bookEdit.do?do=editBook" paramName="book"
paramProperty="id" paramId="id">Edit</html:link></td>
<td><html:link action="bookEdit.do?do=deleteBook" paramName="book"
paramProperty="id" paramId="id">Delete</html:link></td>
</tr>
</logic:iterate>

Thanks anyway.
