# Servlet compile problems

I have my jsdk.jar set in my classpath
as CLASSPATH=C:\JDK1.1.8\LIB\CLASSES.ZIP;c:\jsdk2.0\lib\jsdk.jar
and my path set to SET PATH=C:\JDK1.1.8\BIN;c:\jsdk2.0\bin
But still i get a compile error of HTTP Servlet not found,when i try compiling my servlet. It is not able to recognize, the jsdk.jar set in my classpath. However my pure java code compiles clean, proving that the compiler is able to pick up the classes.zip file in the same classpath. Then why not JSDK.JAR??
Moreover if i do the following on my DOS prompt, i get a clean compile.
c:\jsdk2.0\examples> javac -classpath "c:\jsdk2.0\lib\jsdk.jar";"c:\jdk1.1.8\lib\classes.zip" SimpleServlet.java
Why is this happening?,if it can recognize jsdk.jar here,why not when the same thinng is in the classpath.
I cannot see any logical reasoning to this
need help!!!1

Hi Rupa,
The same prob i encountered few days ago . Initially i did the same thing as u did by taking classpath option with javac. Solution to this, whatever classpath u've in ur Autoexec.bat , give it a prefix of set , i.e. ,
set classpath = c:\jsdk2.0\lib\jsdk.jar;
Run the autoexec .
let me know if it works at ur place, since i've no reason , why after prefixing "set" it works ?

it still does not work!!!1
i went to the autoexec file and prefixed classpath with SET
and it now looks like set classpath=c:........
is there something else i should do?//

Well, I'm not working with 1.1.8 and the JSDK, but since the servlet classes are all "standard extensions" shouldn't the jsdk.jar be in the /lib/ext/ directory.
Jar files in that directory are automatically included with Java 1.2 - I don't remember if this is true about 1.1.8

well , i actually havent seen the fact that u r using JDK 1.1.8.
Since i've heard , well not experienced, u must have JDK 1.2.2 , thats what i'm using .
If u get JDK 1.2.2-win install it, & try , if it works as i suggested, then let me know ,
