I am using Tomcat Server. In the webapps directory I have created following directories
webapps / shopping / WEB-INF / classes / shopping
webapps / shopping / WEB-INF / classes / servlet

I have created a bean in shopping directory and it compiles fine

I have created a servlet in the servlet directory. When i try to compile it, it gives an error

package shopping does not exist

Please tell me how can i resolve this.

hope this helps.. if still in doubt do revert back.

Bye and take Care
