Hello, I'm working ahead a bit and I've run into a snag trying to get setup for the servlet assignments. I've found my exact problem described here: http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/001387.html When I made the suggested fixes, the testservlet code wouldn't compile - I had to re-instate my previous classpath so I'm basically back to where I started. If anyone has had this same issue and they were able to get past it (J.C. Cook??) please let me know. Thanks, Pat B.
