using this command :

javac -classpath "C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\apache-tomcat-6.0.13\lib\servlet-api.jar":classes:. -d classes src\com\

Errors I am getting like this:

e.g. :

src\com\ package javax.servlet does not exist
import javax.servlet.*;

As far as I know everything is correct in path. I have installed new tomcat and servlet-api.jar is there in lib.

Please suggest a solution.

Try enclosing the complete classpath in double quotes, and not just part of it. Also, since you're on Windows, the delimiter that separates classpath entries is ";", not ":" (that's for Unix-like operating systems).
