The same file compiles on one machine and does not compile on a second machine. The classpath is :
set CLASSPATH=C:\J2SDKEE1.3\LIB;C:\jdk1.3.0_02\jre\lib;C:\jdk1.3.0_02\lib;.
Why does it compile on 1 machine and does not compile on another?
C:\orion\default-web-app\WEB-INF\classes>javac -classpath %CPATH% package javax.servlet does not exist
import javax.servlet.*;
^ package javax.servlet.http does not exist
import javax.servlet.http.*;

The javax.servlet related packages usually live in their own JAR file. Typically servlet.jar
That would be the first place to look.
You should not have to specify
in a classpath, read the docs in the tooldocs section on how Java finds library files.
I agree. Here's the link:
