    Unable to embed swf movie using mediaOutput

    Alan Gross Newbie

      Hi Forum

      I'm trying to embed a swf movie using the mediaOutput (as described in the demo). But I can't get it to work.. It just happens nothing.

      I added the request scope beans MediaBean and MediaData.

      This my page:

      It seems like the MediaBean class is never initiated.. What am I doing wrong?
      Thank you very much for a hint!
      Best regards
