    How to call a Java class from a JSP

    Hello every body

    I am learning JSP from a e-book "Teach Yourself JSP 2.0 with Apache Tomcat in 24 Hours (Sams, 2003)". here actually an example is given where we have to call a class from a JSP by importing it.

    here is the code
    <%@ page language="java" import="examples.*" %>
    The message is: <%= ReloadedClass.getMessage() %>

    package examples;

    public class ReloadedClass
    public static String getMessage()
    return "This is the original message";

    Can some one please help me i actually dont know where to place the ReloadedClass.class file. And one more thing i have not actually used the package named 'examples'. i am using the Apache Tomcat Server so please guide me where should i place the .class file and under which folder.
    right now i am placing the class file under "\Tomcat\webapps\examples\WEB-INF\classes\" the default place for placing class files as that of servlets

    It's okey to put the ReloadedClass class file in WEB-INF/classes folder.

    one more thing i have not actually used the package named 'examples'
    Then remove import="examples.*" you don't need it.

    Look at J2EE web application directory structure
