I have downloaded jsdk and tomcat
I tried to run the following program
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
public class HelloWorld extends HttpServlet {
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
throws IOException, ServletException
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
out.println("<title>Hello World!</title>");
out.println("<h1>Hello World!</h1>");
It is showing me an error saying
Package javax.servlet not found.
my javax directory doesnt have servlet directory ...?
Do i need to download javax from somewhere ?
