Iam new to servlets.Iam working on the first mvc example in HF servlets book. I downloaded tomcat 5.5 and j2se sdk 1.5. Tomcat is running fine.I set the following in the environment variables.

classpath is %CLASSPATH%;%TOMCAT_HOME%\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;%TOMCAT_HOME%\common\lib\jsp-api.jar;.
TOMCAT_HOME is C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5
JAVA_HOME is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0.

When I try to compile BeerSelect using c:\MyProjects\beerV1\javac -d classes src\com\example\web\BeerSelect.java it says package javax.servlet does not exist. Can anyone please help me

I think you need to put path of servlet.jar in path environment variable.

hi,

Try using Eclipse IDE, a very good open source tool.

So u will concentrate more on the objective, rather than struggling with petty things.


But some may not recommend it

and u know who it is

Anyway all the best
