I have installed Java Web Server on win98.
In order to compile any servlet, one has to set classpath as c:\JavaWebserver2.0\lib\servlet.jar
If I set this variable in my autoexec.bat,like set CLASSPATH = c:\JavaWebServer2.0\lib\servlet.jar;%CLASSPATH% now If I try to compile the applet
javac HelloWorld.java
compiler gives me error - javax.servlet.*; &
javax.servlet.http.*; not found
but if on commmand line I type
javac -classpath c:\JavaWebServer2.0\lib\servlet.jar HelloWorld.java
then servlet will compile corectly and can be executed on server any idea what is wrong in setting classpath in autoexec.bat file Thanx in Advance

Do u know after setting the autoexec.bat file u have to restart the computer or run autoexec.The other solution is set the classpath directly from the dos prompt.Write the command
set classpath="%classpath%;JWS.../lib/jsdk.jar". Probably this will help you.
