Hi,
I downloaded JDK 1.3.1 from Sun's website and I would like to write and compile Java servlets. How should I set up the development environment on my local PC so I can compile servlets? Right now I wrote a HelloWorldServlet and it gave me this error:
^
HelloWorldServlet.java:7: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class HttpServletRequest
location: class HelloWorldServlet
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req,
^
HelloWorldServlet.java:7: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class HttpServletResponse
location: class HelloWorldServlet
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req,
HelloWorldServlet.java:8: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class ServletException
location: class HelloWorldServlet
throws ServletException, IOException
^
6 errors
I downloaded the Servlet API from Sun also, but I can't understand why this is happening? I also changed my CLASSPATH statement. What am I doing wrong?

You will also need a servlet "engine" or container in order to run servlets locally. The recommended one is Tomcat - download from the jakarta.apache.org web site. The Tomcat instructions should explain which jar file goes where.

Glad Im not nuts... I just ran into the same problem, and answers to these questions can be so hard to find for people like me who are new to Java.
I"m new here -- thanks to all of you for providing this forum. I've recommended it to some other people I work with, who are also in the learning curve when it comes to Java, JSP, servlets, Tomcat, etc...
