Hi All, This is probably more of a DOS query than anything, but... I have copied the .java file into the following directory: jwsdp-1.3/webapps/myapps/WEB-INF/classes but I cannot compile it. (jwsdp-1.3 has Tomcat running). I have changing the command line to the classes directory and then compiling with the following command: javac-classpath C:jwsdp-1.3\common\lib\servlet.jar TestServer.java but I get the following error message: 'javac-classpath' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. I have also changed the CLASSPATH environmental variable to point to the Servlet.jar file in common\lib and then complied with the following: javac TestingServlet.java but I get much the same error message. All of my programming thus far has been applets and applications and I have always used a text editor to compile. Please help! I'm using XP Pro if that makes any difference. Is it possible to use a text editor to compile servlets??? TIA, Jon
The first error is because "javac" is a separate word; there ought to be a space between "javac" and "-classpath." If you've got a similar error from the second command line, then that means the JDK isn't on your path. You need to go into the System control panel (or whatever they've decided to call it this year) and add C:\jdk1.4.2_03\bin to your PATH environment variable. Substitute the correct path to your own particular installation of the JDK if it's different than this. After doing this, you need to open a new command window in which the new settings will have taken effect; close the old one, it won't know about the new PATH.
