Hi all,
I have j2sdk1.4.1 currently installed, as well as j2sdkee1.3.1, and I need to use some j2ee packages in my Java classes, however, it cannot find the packages I specify. I've added j2sdkee to my classpath, but still no luck. I've also tried copying j2ee.jar into my jdk directory, but that didn't work.
In detail, here is what I need to do:
import javax.servlet.*;
Thanks for any suggestions.

for (int i = today; i < endOfTime; i++) { code(); }

set the CLASSPATH to the jar files in the lib directory of the sdk.

If all you need is the javax.servlet.* packages, you don't need the whole J2EE shebang. Your servlet container provides what you need. For example, Tomcat implements javax.servlet in servlet.jar.
Just make sure that this jar in in your classpath when you compile.
P.S. Highly recommend ant to help you compile and set up classpaths easily.
