GenericServlet implements Servlet and ServletConfig.
I am however getting the following exception..

generic.java:19: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : method getServletName ()
location: interface javax.servlet.ServletConfig
String ss = servletConfig.getServletName();
Code is :
public class generic extends GenericServlet
{
public void service(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response)throws ServletException,IOException{
response.setContentType("text/html");
PrintWriter pw = response.getWriter();
ServletConfig servletConfig = getServletConfig();
String ss = servletConfig.getServletName();
pw.println(".."+ss);
}
}

Hi Jeffrey
I ran your code asis and had no problems. It compiled ok and, when run, returned "..generic".
Are there any other bits to your code that you can show us?
Mark.

Hi Jeffrey,
I think you didnot add Servlet.jar into your CLASSPATH.

I accept that its a strange problem but it is finding GenericServlet, ServletRequest,ServletResponse, ServletConfig also..so it is finding servlet.jar from the classpath.
Iam using tomcat from the Cd that comes along with hanumant's book and jdk1.3.I guess that the version is tomcat 4.0.
Mark : Couple of more lines but those were pw.printlns which seemed fine !!
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
