Hi,

I have completed SCJP and now started preparing for SCWCD.
I have installed tomcat6 and jdk1.5

I am not using any IDE and compiling the classes through command prompt itself.

The environment variables i have set are as follows:
CLASS_PATH - C:\jdk1.5\lib;C:\tomcat6\lib\servlet-api.jar;C:\tomcat6\lib\jsp-api.jar;C:\tomcat6\webapps
JAVA_HOME - C:\jdk1.5
Path - C:\jdk1.5\bin;C:\jdk1.5;C:\jdk1.5\jre\bin\server

When i'm trying to compile the servlet i'm getting this error

C:\tomcat6\webapps\HeadFirst\WEB-INF\classes\web>javac BeerSelectAction.java
BeerSelectAction.java:3: package javax.servlet does not exist
import javax.servlet.*;
^
BeerSelectAction.java:4: package javax.servlet.http does not exist
import javax.servlet.http.*;
^
BeerSelectAction.java:7: cannot find symbol
symbol: class HttpServlet
public class BeerSelectAction extends HttpServlet {
^
BeerSelectAction.java:9: cannot find symbol
symbol : class HttpServletRequest
location: class com.example.web.BeerSelectAction
public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,
^
BeerSelectAction.java:10: cannot find symbol
symbol : class HttpServletResponse


Please help me solve this error.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

It looks like your classpath has not well been set, please refer to this url and see if you can set it properly

hope that helps you,

Regards,
Ranil
