How to reference another Java class from JSP?


I have some code in file and I want to reference it by calling it from a jsp file.

In my jsp file, I have:

databaseAccess db = new databaseAccess();

But it gives me a HTTP 500 error report. It says: cannot find symbol
symbol : class databaseAccess

Do I need to “reference” the in my jsp file? How should I do it?


Just like regular Java, you’ll need to import a class or package you want to include in your code.

Like so:

<%@ page import=“java.text., java.util.” %>
