I wrote a simple Java program to work with Tomcat to display a simple web page. I have included the following import statements: import javax.servlet.*; import javax.servlet.http.*; import java.io.*;
The following entries are there in the Classpath variable: c:\Sen\Java\JavaT\jdk1.5\bin; c:\Sen\Java\JavaT\jdk1.5\lib; c:\Sen\Java\JavaT\jdk1.5\; c:\Sen\Java\JavaT\jdk1.5\jre\bin\
On compiling, I get the following error: Ch1Servlet.java:1: package javax.servlet does not exist import javax.servlet.*; ^ Ch1Servlet.java:2: package javax.servlet.http does not exist import javax.servlet.http.*;
Please advise what needs to be done to resolve this.
Alternative: As you are using Tomcat for deploying your servlet, hence to compile it you can include in your classpath: Your_TOMCAT_installation_directory\common\lib\servlet-api.jar This should compile the servlet without any problem.

By adding the jar entry in the Classpath variable worked.
