import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
public class Ch1Servlet extends HttpServlet{
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException {
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
/* some code */
1.package javax.servlet does not exist
import javax.servlet.*;
2.package javax.servlet.http does not exist
import javax.servlet.http.*;
3.cannot find symbol for class HttpServlet,class HttpServletRequest & class HttpServletResponse.

Please note that i have installed jdk 1.6,jre 1.6 & apache tomcat 6.0.Classpath is also set properly.

Incorrect. Your classpath should include the servlet-api.jar that comes with Apache Tomcat. It doesn't, which is why you get these errors.

Thanks a lot!!!
It's working. I have not included the jar file name in classpath, thats why it showed me an error.
