I am quite new to Java, and have been constructing a servlet, which works until I add some new functionality.

This new functionality just so happens to be a bunch of code I have copied from somewhere else. The copied code works fine in its own context. But the problem I have is that my servlet extends HttpServlet, and the copied code has a method from a different class, which was implemented in the original source as extends x.

The problem being that I can't extend 2 different classes, what is the way to tackle this problem?

You could create an instance of x and call its appropriate methods.

Paul,

I was in the process of composing another message saying I did not understand what you meant, when I looked at the code again, and figured out what to do, from your suggestion. It now works.

Thank you.

Andrew
