Hi All...as i am new member i don't know where to post this particular post. Kindly accept my apologies if posted in a wrong forum.

I am working on Tomcat 5.5 and Java SE 5.0. I am working on servlets.

I do have a servlet file at the following directory. this is not a tomcat directory, but a simple directory as shown :

NO 1: C:\myproject\beerV1\src\com\example\web ..
Over here at Web i have servlet file by name BeerSelect.java. The package name give in this servlet file is "package com.example.web" (excluding the double quotes).

Now, i have another servlet program , a src file and a .class file at the following path..

NO 2: C:\myproject\beerV1\src\com\example\model

The problem i am facing is when i go to compile the Servlet file from the path as shown in the first path (No 1) my servlet is not being compiled and i get the following error..

BeerSelect.java:3: package com.example.model does not exist
import com.example.model.*;
^
BeerSelect.java:19: cannot find symbol
symbol : class BeerExpert
location: class com.example.web.BeerSelect
BeerExpert be=new BeerExpert();
^
BeerSelect.java:19: cannot find symbol
symbol : class BeerExpert
location: class com.example.web.BeerSelect
BeerExpert be=new BeerExpert();
^
3 errors

As far as my knowledge goes the package path is correct as described in the NO 1 and N0 2 above.

Please help me out of this..

thank you.


This is a sample code from Head First Servlet and JSP, chapter 3 page 84.

You need to make sure that the directory C:\myproject\beerV1\src\ is in your classpath. The easiest way to do that is to navigate to C:\myproject\beerV1\src\ and compile/run your classes from there:

That Beer Expert application is supposed to be a beginner’s exercise. Delete the package names and import declarations and put everything into one folder which you use as the unnamed package.

Yes I made that working. You have to add your ../model in your classpath and compile with "-cp" option instead of "-d". In my case it successfully worked.

Thank You Sir Ritchie Its a place where I can find all of my solutions.
Proud to be a part of it.
I have one question in mind. If I want to upload my this sample web-app on Github. Will that work? I tried it. It shows only index.html content and nothing else If i perform any action on my index.html page. Or I will have to build it. Any solutions there?
