Hi All,
Can someone tell me why I can't compile
import java.util.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
import com.oreilly.servlet.*;
public class UploadTest extends HttpServlet {
public void doPost(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res) throws ServletException, IOException {
if (req instanceof MultipartWrapper) {
cannot access javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequestWrapper.class not found.
I'm running tomcat 3.2.1
Do I need to upgrade to tomcat 4.1?
Or is there something else?
Thanks for the look,

Do you have this package com.oreilly.servlet.* and did you set your classpath in order to be able to locate it?

That class is in the servlet.jar for Tomcat 4 - There really is no reason I know of to stay with Tomcat 3.

Thanks, I thought it might be that. Are there any tricks I should look out for to do a migration to Tomcat 4 from 3.2.1?
I agree. Here's the link:
