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. Bill
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...

pardon me, but you've obviously mistaken me for someone who gives a damn...
