I am currently stuck at the part where the author asks you to compile the servlet using "javac", he then explains it in the os shell, but I am a windows user.
I am having problems to execute that line of code. I think that my JAVA_HOME and etc must be set up correctly since I created a sample and
compiled it useing javac and it created the correspondent .class file.
I am failing to see the logic of this command, you specify a class path to the servlet-api.jar file and then you give it another path so it can execute the .java file?
I would like to get out of this hole I am in right now. These are the paths to my files:

C:\Users\Carlos L\Tomcat\apache-tomcat-8.0.28\bin\servlet-api.jar
and this is where my file is:
C:\Users\Carlos L\Tomcat\My Tomcat Projects\beer-v1\src\com\example\web\

so far i have been imputing:
javac -classpath C:\Users\Carlos L\Tomcat\apache-tomcat-8.0.28\bin\servlet-api.jar; classes:. d-classes src\com\example\web\

and I am getting this error:

javac: invalid flag: d-classes
usage:javac <options> <source files>

This should not be this hard.

You might have a look at my notes in the ScwcdLinks.
