hello


I've been trying to learn about servlets i am basically a begginer and I basically have a problem while i declare @WebServlet annotation my eclipse says it cannot be resolved into a type when i did some research on it i found this link

http://www.eclipse.org/jdt/apt/introToAPT.html

i followed all the steps in that but still i get the error message what should i do???

This is the code for the servlet as you can see i'm stuck here

package org.prathik.sample;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.PrintWriter;

import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

/**
* Servlet implementation class SimpleServlet
*/
public class SimpleServlet extends HttpServlet {
private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

/**
* @see HttpServlet#doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
*/
@WebServlet(description = "A Simple Servlet" , urlPatterns ={"/SimpleServletPath"})
protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
System.out.print("sample Web Servlet");
PrintWriter writer = response.getWriter();
writer.print("Hello :");
}

}


I am trying to learn from scratch as i basically new to servlets so could some one guide me in the right direction

Thanks

Prathik

Does the Servlets container support Servlets 3.0?

Well, then why should you be surprised when Servlet 3.0 annotations don't work with a Servlets 2.5 container?

Having the API jar is not going to help you without a container that supports it. Why not just download Tomcat 7 and be done with it?

I'm moving this to the IDEs forum as the Servlets forum is not the place to discuss how to use an IDE.

What IDE are you using? The IDE should ask you which servlet version you want to support, but exactly how to specify that version varies depending on the IDE.

Besides, why don't you simply replace the existing version info with the correct one? After all, the web.xml file is just a text file. See this: http://dominikdorn.com/2010/03/web-xml-web-fragment-xml-2-3-2-4-2-5-3-0/
