You must first download j2ee sdk from sun, then place j2ee.jar in the classpath.
javax.servlet isn't in the standard j2se libraries.

First, check if servlet-api.jar and jsp-api.jar really exist in the indicated places.

It might be that the spaces in the directory names cause problems. Try putting directories with spaces in double quotes, like this:

set CLASSPATH="C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\servlet-api.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\jsp-api.jar";.

Can you try "echo %CLASSPATH%" in command prompt and post the output here? Also how are you compiling the code, which command you typed ?
