I have written the following line in doGet() method
but the compiler is giving an error saying that : Method getRequestDispatcher (java.lang.String) not found in interface javax.servlet.ServletContext.

Can anyone pls explain this?
thank you

This probably means you are using a servlet container which only implements an older version of the Servlet API. What server or container are you using, and which version?
