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.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
