I plead with you for help setting up my J2EE environment!

My Dearest Java-People,

How are you? I am fine. I must admit however, that things are not going quite as splendidly as I had hoped concerning Servlets and JSP. I've managed to fumble my way through installation of the J2EE SDK 1.4 All-In-One Bundle, and have even managed to get Tomcat up and running. Life was looking rosy until I tried completing an exercise from one of the books I've purchased. It was at compile time when disaster struck! I now face six, count em', SIX disasterous errors.

People's Exhibit A:



Not being a completely hapless twit, I feebly searched the intarweb to help with my plight. It was in this, my darkest of hours, that I stumbled upon information regarding mysterious Environment Variables. With assistance from my aging grandmother, I've toiled to set the following:

%J2EE_HOME% C:\Sun\AppServer
%JAVA_HOME% C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk

Yet still I'm faced with those same half-dozen errors, and I know not what to do. I've become quite emotionally distraught, and now turn to you for aid. Hopefully someone will hear my piteous plea, and provide me what answers I seek, while I go drown my sorrows in a bowl of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.

Sincerely,

Adam

I've managed to solve this riddle on my own. Further research showed that I needed to add the location of j2ee.jar to the CLASSPATH. Success!

(Unfortunately, now I'm having trouble with Tomcat seeing my servlet! Woe is me!)
