instead of import javax.servlet; use import javax.servlet.*; You should use this rule:
import packagename.classname; or * instead of classname for all classes in that package.

Are you using J2EE? JSP/Servlets, Beans are used with the Enterprise Edition- not the Standard edition.

yes, i downloaded j2ee 1.4 sdk, added %installdir%/bin to the PATH and %installdir%/lib to the current CLASSPATH, but this package still is not found.

Did you put the lib directory or the j2ee.jar file into the CLASSPATH? you need to put j2ee.jar into the CLASSPATH, not the lib directory
