Hello, I am not sure whether this is the appropriate forum to post this. Please excuse me if I have made an error. I have been using HeadFirst Servlets and JSP and I compiled the BeerSelect.java code (the second version of the controller servlet). I get the following error message saying that the package com.example.model does not exist. Please help me as I am unsure how to proceed with debugging this issue. I have pasted the error message below
D:\MyProjects\beerV1>javac -d classes src/com/example/web/BeerSelect.java src/com/example/web/BeerSelect.java:20: cannot access src.com.example.model.BeerExpert bad class file: .\src\com\example\model\BeerExpert.java file does not contain class src.com.example.model.BeerExpert Please remove or make sure it appears in the correct subdirectory of the classpath. BeerExpert be = new BeerExpert();
Looks like you're compiling it as src.com.etc.etc rather than com.etc.etc, as below. Not a stupid question, we've had this question a couple of times so I'll point it out to Bert and Kathy, maybe they can look at polishing these instructions in the next edition!
