Head first Servlet & JSP : command syntax I cann't explain why
Post by:Albert Liou
Hello All, I run the programs in Chap3 of Head First Servlet and JSP.
For compiling the Servlet version 1, I used the command as the book stated "javac -classpath /tomcat55/common/lib/servlet-api.jar:classes:. -d classes src/com/example/web/BeerSelect.java".
It will show up the error messages as "package javax.servlet does not exist...." , but if I leave out the flag ":classes:." after the "...servlet-api.jar" it compile without error, and testing with servlet is OK.
What this flag ":classes:." means ? why it causes problem in my environment ? Any idea ! looking forward to hear from you ! Thanks!

Under Windows, you have to use semicolons instead : ";classes;."
