I am trying to compile a servlet and it is not recognizing
import javax.servlet.*
Could anybody know which files I have to add in the class path.

what webserver are you using? If you are using Tomcat 4.0 I have experienced similar problems..see my post in this forum under compiling servlets under Tomcat 4.0.
In case you arent using tomcat 4.0, try locating the servlet.jar file and explicitly mention it in the classpath option when you compile. I have found that it works.
ex javac -classpath "path to servlet.jar"
hope this helps
I agree. Here's the link:
