Iam trying to compile a serlet that uses packages and utilities.
I have the utility in c:\servletdevel\Servletutility.java and the servlet in c:\servletdevel\ShowMessage.java.
Both have coreservlets as package in the file.
I could compile servletutility.java file but when i tried to compile the ShowMessage.java it gave a compile error saying
cannot resolve symbol Servletutility.
This is where in ShowMessage where i have used the Servletutility class
I have set the classpath as
%classpath%;c:\servletdevel;c:\tomcat\common\lib\servlet.jar.
Please let what iam doing wrong?.
Thanks

use
classpath=%classpath%;mydir\myjar.jar;.
"." is needed.
cheers..

Hi Laksmeenarayana,
Do you mean i need to put "." at the end of the classpath. I did that and still iam getting the compilation error. Let me know what you think.
Thanks
