The Product and Category Classes
Before you can actually display the product and category pages, you need to create the underlying beans that the JSP pages depend on, much as you did with the Customer class in Chapter 8. These beans are a bit different, however, because they don't handle form input. Instead, they get their content by reading from the database (similar to the findCustomer method).
You can start with the product bean because the category bean will need to use it. You can find it in Listing 9.6.
