Importing java class in jsp

C

CAESAR

Hi..

I am trying to import a java class in a jsp file but getting the
following error:

Unable to compile class for JSP:


both the jsp and the java file are in the root folder.

Can someone tell me the reason for the above problem.

both the jsp and the java file are in the root folder.

you import class files, not source.

If you are using tomcat, the class file should be in something like:

X:\Program
Files\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\webapps\WEB-INF\classes\com\mycompany\myproject\ZZZZ.class

Actually, you import classes, which are stored in "*.class" files
somewhere in the class path.
If you are using tomcat [sic], the class file should be in something like:

X:\Program
Files\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\webapps\WEB-INF\classes\com\mycompany\myproject\ZZZZ.class

The import statement would not have the ".class" part of the name in
it, nor any slashes. It would import the class via its fully-
qualified name (FQN), such as

<%@ page language="java"
imports="com.mycompany.myproject.ZZZZ,java.util.*" %>

Better yet, don't use JSP imports; just refer to classes by their
FQNs.

Even better yet, don't use Java scriptlet in JSP pages at all - just
use JSTL, EL and custom tags and a framework like JSF (preferred) or
Struts.

I would use the phrase "import class names" instead of "import classes".
