Hi All,

I need help to compile the servlet code from HFJS



I try to compile the servlet code from HFJS

This is my file structure: C:\project1

I placed Ch1Servlet in C:\project\src;

I used Tomcat 5.028 and installed in c:\program files\tomcat 5.0

The enivornment variables I set up as

classpath .;c:\j2sdk1.4.2_16\lib\tools.jar;c:\j2sdk1.4.2_16\bin;%CATALINA_HOME%\common\lib\jsp-api.jar;%CLASSPATH%

path %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;c:\j2sdk1.4.2_16\bin;d:\

JAVA_HOME C:\j2sdk1.4.2_16
CATALINE_HOME C:\program files\tomcat 5.0

I compile the servlet from command(DOS) prompt:

C:\>javac -classpath /project1/classes/tomcat/common/lib/servlet-api.jar
-d classes src/

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();
java.util.Date today = new java.util.Date();
out.println("<html>" + "<body>" + "<h1 align=center>HF\'s Chapter1 Servlet</h1>"
+ "<br>" + today + "</body>" + "</html>");


I got 5 errors as
"package javax.servlet does not exist"
"package javax.servlet.http does not exist"
"HttpServletRequest, cannot resolve system", etc

What went wrong???
