Hi all,
I am currently using eclipse galileo and NetBeans 6.8 IDE. I am doing the servlet programming with these IDEs. I open completely two separate projects with these.

NetBeans 6.8 working just fine. But eclipse galileo creates problem.

I create new project by clicking "file->dynamic web project". that works well. but when i create a servlet under this project, eclipse generates the default servlet where all the servlet related packages and objects marks as underline. That means that, eclipse or some points of eclipse configuration can not locate the servlet objects and packages properly.

to solve the problem i delete the eclipse ide and unpack and setup eclipse galileo sevaral times. I am using tomcat v.6.0.24 as web server. but the problem remains same.


can anyone please help on this issue, please? It's urgent.

Regards
codeperl

I guess, you never use eclipse before . Create a new web project[It will ask you to runtime configuration for a server] . and create a package(example, com.google) and then create a Servlet.

If you dont want to configure server in eclipse , then use Ant build tool to deploy the application into server location

Eclipse doesn't contain a copy of Tomcat or for that matter, any J2EE server. If you want to reference J2EE classes, you have to tell your project where to find copies of them.

A simple way to do that is to go to the Project Properties/Build/Libraries options page and add external entries for the jsp-api.jar and servlet-api.jar files in the lib directory of a copy of Tomcat that's been installed on your system.

For project portability, you can define these libraries as symbolically-named resources using the Eclipse Preferences editor, then include their symbolic references in your project.
