Hi guys,
I use oracle server that has apache tomcat http server.
Web server works fine along with jsp and servlets.
IsItWorking servlet loads well too.
But I have a problem compiling servlets, I get an error:
HelloWorld.java:4: package javax.servlet does not exist
import javax.servlet.*;
HelloWorld.java:5: package javax.servlet.http does not exist
import javax.servlet.http.*;
I understand that it cannot find certain classes, but how then I can compile .java that imports javax.servlet.* ???
thanks

The classes you need can be found in either j2ee.jar or servlet.jar
If you are running tomcat, servlet.jar is available in TOMCAT_HOME/common/lib
Tomcat can find it here when it needs it, but if you want to compile your servlets you'll need to add it to your classpath...
Dave.
