Hi,

I am new to Java.I have a problem when compiling a servlet.It gives error that
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_10\bin>javac HelloWorld.java
HelloWorld.java:2: package javax.servlet does not exist
import javax.servlet.*;
^
HelloWorld.java:3: package javax.servlet.http does not exist
import javax.servlet.http.*;

Here I have placed simple servlet HelloWorld in bin dir of j2sdk1.4.2_10 and trying to compile it frm there

I have jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9-preconfigured ,j2sdk1.4.2_10 on my windows XP system.And my classpath variables are

CATALINA_HOME - C:\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9-preconfigured\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9
JAVA_HOME -C:\j2sdk1.4.2_10
PATH -%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp;$JAVA_HOME\bin;$JAVA_HOME\lib;$CATALINA_HOME\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;$CATALINA_HOME\common\lib\jsp-api.jar

TEMP -%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp;$JAVA_HOME\bin;$JAVA_HOME\lib;$CATALINA_HOME\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;$CATALINA_HOME\common\lib\jsp-api.jar

TMP -%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Temp

Actually I downloaded jakarta preconfigured version where the dir structure is like this
jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9-preconfigured\tomcat-5.5.9\common\lib\servlet-api.jar

I have even tried setting classpath at command prompt by giving
c:\ set classpath =%classpath%jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9-preconfigured\tomcat-5.5.9\common\lib\servlet-api.jar


But still compiler is givig the error that servlet packages are not found..I am not able to figure out where the problem would be.Please some one help me reg this..

Thanks
Karthik
