hello experts,
I am just a beginner in servlets, need your help.The directory c:\jsdk2.0\bin contains a servletrunner.exe.Now i want to update the path environment variable so that it includes this directory.The directory c:\jsdk2.0\lib contains jsdk.jar.This jar file contains the classes and interfaces that are needed to build servlets.How do i update my classpath environment varaible so that it includes c:\jskd2.0\lib\jsdk.jar.
Please write down the full path.I need to know that urgently.

Since you are just starting - STOP - do not use the JSDK package and servletrunner, Sun does not support it. Remove all traces of JSDK and install the Tomcat package from jakarta.apache.org.
Tomcat is Sun's official reference version for the current servlet and JSP APIs.
I would love to know why people keep trying to start with JSDK when the java.sun.com site VERY clearly says that it is no longer supported. Where are you folks getting this bad information?

I don't know of any reason that Tomcat would have any more problem with Win95 than servletrunner would have. If you can run the java compiler and other Java programs, you should have no trouble. Tomcat is 100% Java.
I just tried http://jakarta.apache.org/
and it worked.
Once again - where did you get the impression that JSDK was the way to go for servlet development? Is there some publication spreading bad information?

Hello Mr williams,
I tried to work with java webserver but it did not work becuse i have win 95 which does not support networking that is why i shifted to servletrunner so that i can learn to use servlet.There is no organization which is spreading any sort of information reagrding servletrunner utility.
