Hello, Im trying to compile But Igot errors on simple lines such as "import javax.servlet.*;" I belive that Im missing a jar-file clalled "servlets.jar" I have 2 java-dirs, "C:\Java\j2sdk1.4.1_03" & "C:\Program\Java\j2re1.4.1_03". But none of theme contains servlets.jar. Do I need j2ee or something more? My compiling error is: cannot resolve symbol.

Absolutely. You need a J2EE implementation, which will contain a jar containing the needed classes. Depending on which J2EE implementation you get (Tomcat, Weblogic, etc), it may or may not be named 'servlet.jar'.

U can change ur display name here.

Hi Sebastian,
Your best bet is to download the Tomcat-5 Servlet container, it contains a "sevlet.jar" file you can place in your path when compiling. Read the Tomcat docs re configuring the web.xml file, assembling your web app, deploying it, and then running it. Its a bit of a learning curve but once you have done it a few times it becomes second nature.

The easiest way is to use and IDE that is meant for web app development. It should have all the libraries needed. For Tomcat, use this simple IDE

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
