import javax.servlet.jsp.*;

How can I specify "foo" in classpath?

Thanks a lot
I cd into foo directory, the 2 class all under this directory.

1) I type: javac
and found BeerExpert.class in foo directory

2) I type: javac -classpath /tomcat/common/lib/servlet-api.jar

and got this error message

BeerExpert be= new BeerExpert();
can not found BeerExpert

Thanks a lot

package foo;

import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import java.util.*;

public class BeerSelect
extends HttpServlet

public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,HttpServletResponse response)
throws IOException, ServletException{

java.util.Date today = new java.util.Date();

String c=request.getParameter("color");

BeerExpert be = new BeerExpert();
List result= be.getBrands(c);


PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();

out.println("beer selection advice");

Iterator it=result.iterator();

while(it.hasNext()) {



package foo;

import java.util.*;

public class BeerExpert{

public List getBrands(String color)


List brands = new ArrayList();

if (color.equals("amber")) {
brands.add("jack Amber");
brands.add("Rose Amber");

brands.add("Jail pale Ale");
brands.add("Gout Stout");

return brands;



when I compile the 2 classes "in same directory".
the only mistake is the compiler always tell me can not found BeerExpert,

BeerExpert be = new BeerExpert();

Anyone can help me figure out? Thanks a lot

Did SCJP help you?

I haven't try yet! 4-5 years before,it helped nothing because the market very low. Now I know the market much better, so decide to give another try.

Just want to come here gather more information. then do some preparation.

I thought study SCJD might help me two things
1. update my skills, to catch up
2. may increase the job chance

How do you guys think? :roll:

Dear David and Ben:

I have explain to you why some people�s surname might not be more than two letter as the great diversity exist on the planet earth.

However, please feel free to make any decision based on your understanding instead of discussing this matter again and again.

Thanks for you attention.

Dear all

I graduated in 2002 with master degree in IT from a very good university, however at that time IT is very low, I love java very much and got Sun certificate Java programmer in 2003. But I fail to found a job, My first degree in Architecture, So I work as Architect since 2003.

Do you think there is any hope for me to go back to Java area, part of the problem is I lack of IT work experience.

Any suggestion & advice would be very much appreciated!
