Hi Madhu,
The servlet engines that I have worked with all use their own CLASSPATH -- which is totally independent of yours! So you need to configure your servlet engine's CLASSPATH -- to include "C:\moreservlets".
How you configure the servlet engine's classpath depends on the servlet engine you are using -- but I'm sure the details can be found in the documentation (for your servlet engine).
Hope this helps.
Good Luck,

Avi... the problem was with compilation.

madhu, I think I recognize a few names in your post. Are you looking at moreservlets ?
