Does J2sdk1.4.2-30 support servlet? Or I have to download JWSDK? I complie a servlet, the error is pacakge javax.servlet not exist. WHy I heard that the J2sdk already include servelt?

J2SE does not include any of the the J2EE packages. Servlet, JSP, JavaMail etc. You need to get those from a seperate source. You could download each package seperately or download JWSDP. Also, if you download a server such as Tomcat, you get those packages with it usually in the shared lib.


I Hope This Helps

I have installed Tomcat 4.1.30, and I can see its servlet exampel at localhost:8080,
after I add the webapp model, I can see the servlet example at localhost/examples, Except Naming example is not working, other can run.

but what shall I do to compile my servelt code? add Tomcat 's class path? I didn't find anything under tomcat's shared folder. Lib and class are empty. Please advise me ! thanks a lot!

You need to add the position of servlet.jar to the classpath. It will probably be somewhere like $CATALINA_HOME/lib for *nix, and probably c:\tomcat4.1\lib\servlet.jar or similar on windows (version/install directory may change).

Cheers,

No need sorry, it is because of your answer that I serach "servlet.jar" under CATALINA_HOME, otherwise, I only thought to include the CATALINIA_HOME/bin is enough. Thanks
