When I tried for compiling servlet,that has a POJO(model) creation in its code,I got "package does not exists" error for the POJO even though I gave the import statement.Also I have specified the classpath for the POJO.How can I resolve this problem?

Thank and regards,

This error can only mean one (or more) of these problems:

1. You did not import the package correctly.
2. The package is not on the classpath correctly while compiling.
3. The directory structure does not match the full package name.
4. The package statement in the POJO class is not correct.

Check all these things.

try giving the classpath while compiling. Also the only possible error can be directory strucuture.
