import javax.Servlet.*;

Looks like servlet.jar is missing from your class path, if so add c:/whereitis/servlet.jar to the class path and try compiling again.
Hope this helps.

Looks like nobody interested in answering my question.
there is no servlet.jar in my jdk1.3.0_02\lib.
I think i need to have servlet.jar in my jdk1.3.0_02\lib to my servlet work properly.
correct me if i am wrong.

Krishna,
This is my classpath setting in c:\autoexec.bat file in win98 platform. We can keep the servlet in any dir.But that dir must be in classpath. I have servlet.jar as C:\jakarta-tomcat\lib\servlet.jar.Just make a search in your file system to see if there are 2 versions of servlet.jar which are in classpath.
Did you install jsdk/jswdk also in your machine? Sometimes the servlet.jar which came with old jsdk , give lots of headache when we try to use Tomcat.
If you find any other servlet.jar other than the one came with Tomcat just rename them and see.

@IF ERRORLEVEL 1 PAUSE
set JAVA_HOME=c:\jdk1.3.0_02
set path=c:\jdk1.3.0_02\bin
set TOMCAT_HOME=c:\software\tomcat
set class_path=c:\jdk1.3.0_02\lib\tools.jar
set class_path=%class_path%;c:\raji

Krishna, did you make the changes suggested by Madhav i.e. did you change capital S to small s in the import statements? i.e. did you change Servlet to servlet?
Are the error messages exactly the same? If both the code and error messages have changed then maybe you could post them.

Here is my code:
--------------------------------------------------------------
import java.io.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
public class HelloWorld extends HttpServlet {
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
throws IOException, ServletException
{
response.setContentType("text/html");
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
out.println("<html>");
out.println("<body>");
out.println("<head>");
out.println("<title>Hello World!</title>");
out.println("</head>");
out.println("<body>");
out.println("<h1>Hello World!</h1>");
out.println("</body>");
out.println("</html>");
}
}
And this is the error message iam getting :
________________________________________________
import javax.servlet.http.*;
^
HelloWorld.java:5: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class HttpServlet
location: class HelloWorld
public class HelloWorld extends HttpServlet {
^
HelloWorld.java:7: cannot resolve symbol

location: class HelloWorld
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
^
HelloWorld.java:7: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class HttpServletResponse
location: class HelloWorld
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
^
HelloWorld.java:8: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class ServletException
location: class HelloWorld
throws IOException, ServletException
^
6 errors
And this is my autoexec.bat:
___________________-----_________________________________________

C:\PROGRA~1\NETWOR~1\MCAFEE~1\SCAN.EXE C:\
@IF ERRORLEVEL 1 PAUSE

set class_path=%class_path%;c:\raji
set class_path=%class_path%;c:\software\tomcat\lib\servlet.jar

hey,
since anna had given u the classpath it might be right,what i doubt is what did u save the file as helloworld.java or Hello
World.java,this might lead to cannot resolve symbol HelloWorld,check it out,else sorry,i have not checked ur classpath since anna had given u the solution.

Hi,
I think problem is with the dir structure.There is always "jakatas-tomcat-3.2.1" dir created wherever you install tomcat.So I think it should be
"c:\software\tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.1\lib\servlet.jar"
instead of c:\software\tomcat\lib\servlet.jar.
If the problem pesists reinstall tomcat on root so that claspath will be c:\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.1\lib\servlet.jar.

Try this,posted previously by some one.It helped me.
move/copy the servlet.jar file manually to the %JAVA_HOME%\jre\lib\ext folder.If you do this you donot need to set the classpath for javax.servlet.* packages, as the Java Run-time environment would find it for you.
