I am currently studying about servlets using "Head First Servlets and JSP", and I am stuck trying to build my first servlet from Ch. 3 of the book. Yes I know, it is pathetic.

I plan to move to eclipse for Java development soon, but for now I want to understand what I am doing. Unfortunately, I am stuck developing on a Windows workstation, and I am having a world of trouble getting a simple servlet to build. Windows is not exactly my forte, so I might not having something set correctly. When I compile standard java programs not using any special libraries, everything compiles just fine. When I try to make a servlet, it blows up on me. I suspect the issue is a CLASSPATH problem, but it should work unless I am missing something.

Here is my CLASSPATH variable:
CLASSPATH=.;C:\IBM\SQLLIB\java\db2java.zip;C:\IBM\SQLLIB\java\db2jcc.jar;C:\IBM\SQLLIB\java\sqlj.zip;C:\IBM\SQLLIB\java\db2jcc_license_cu.jar;C:\IBM\SQLLIB\bin;C:\IBM\SQLLIB\java\common.jar;C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib

So I have this really simple code:



Below is the screen output (sorry the workstation is Japanese...but right now I am only concerned about the first error--I will do this one step at a time...slowly). It basically says that "import javax.servlet.*;" line is failing and that it does not exist.



Any ideas? The build command is the same as the one in the textbook, except that they use UNIX and I am using Windows.

Nevermind, I deleted the "...../servlet-api.jar:classes:." part and it worked. I wonder why that is put in the book?
