Iam new to servlets.Iam working on the first mvc example in HF servlets book. I downloaded tomcat 5.5 and j2se sdk 1.5. Tomcat is running fine.I set the following in the environment variables.
classpath is %CLASSPATH%;%TOMCAT_HOME%\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;%TOMCAT_HOME%\common\lib\jsp-api.jar;. TOMCAT_HOME is C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5 JAVA_HOME is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0.
When I try to compile BeerSelect using c:\MyProjects\beerV1\javac -d classes src\com\example\web\BeerSelect.java it says package javax.servlet does not exist. Can anyone please help me
Actually, posting the code won't help. It is a classpath issue. You do not have the servlets jar file in your classpath. It looks like you have it in your configuration for Tomcat, but it has not affect on running javac from a dos prompt.
I'd do a search on classpath in google to help better understand how classpaths work. If you plan to take the SCJP you will be tested on classpaths, I can guarantee that.
