Hi
If you add 'c:\jdk1.3\bin' to the PATH then you can call javac from any location in the file structure.

do what i always do to avoid this all path issue:
copy the servlet.jar to this directory:
c:\jdk1.4\jre\lib\ext
you get the idea (although your directory structure may be a little different).

Hello Rene and Roy!!
Rene i could use the PATH variable successfully thanks for your help.
Roy if i m not wrong that you want me to put the servlet.jar file in jdk directory so that whenever i import any javax classes the compiler can easily access thru servlet.jar in the same directory.
Correct me if i m wrong in getting this point.
Thanks Again,

you got it
all external classes you get, including the servlet.jar classes, you can put in the ext directory i showed you.
then the java compiler finds them automatically without needing the classpath commands.
