The more evidence you can examine, the better. It sounds like you have a bu=
problem, that is to say, you need to examine how you build your web app.

You haven't given us much evidence, just a vague description, but the one=
piece of hard evidence you did provide, "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException",=
is indicative.

This hints that you did not build a WAR, and further that you are attemptin=
to invoke Java code directly from a JSP, which is a big no-no in Java Web=
apps. That's even if you are using correct syntax, let alone modern syntax.

So the bad news is, absent contrary evidence, you have a lot of mistakes
in your application, some fatal and some more slowly so.

Which is normal, especially as one is learning. And then forever after that=

The tricky part is figuring out what you did wrong, especially when you are=
new to a platform. This means asking the right questions, first of yourself=
and then of others.

Here's what you need to learn:
- Using Expression Language (EL) and JSP tags
  to eliminate the appearance of Java code in your JSP pages.
  Most of the tags you need should exist already. I can't recall ever actua=
  needing to write a custom tag. Good. It would have been more trouble than=
  it's worth.

  Logic, OTOH, I can write in Java. Then you use EL to push and pull values=
  to the display.

  Logic, of the model kind, does not belong in the presentation layer, the =
  Look up "Model-View-Controller (MVC)".

- How to build a Java package, properly.
  This begins with thoroughly understanding the JAR file, which is where yo=
  "java.lang.ClassNotFoundException" would have been found.

  Then you can thoroughly understand the WAR file, which is the Java Web ap=
  supersized JAR file, which in turn is Java's megawatt ZIP file.

  Then you can read how to deploy a WAR to Tomcat or other favorite app ser=

- The standard build process for Java Web apps.

Your exception stems from not putting the class in the right place, asking=
for it from the wrong place, and not having thoroughly read the instruction=
yet. That last becomes a lifelong habit. So many times I find the answers t=
questions I have in fundamental documentation (i.e., tutorials) that I've=
actually read. Many times. And needed to read again.

Besides, a lot of documentation is fun, like "What Every Computer Scientist=
 Should Know About Floating-Point Arithmetic".
