if you are using tomcat6 .
the default installation directory will be:
c:\program files\apache software foundation\tomcat 6.0.
in this directory you should find the lib(libraries) directory there you will find servlet.jar or tomcat-servlet.jar and also the main containers responsible for running of servletengine.

extract the jar file and set the class path to the extracted directory or just copy the jar file to the webapplication you building.

NO!!!

Do not extract or copy the file anywhere! Leave it where it is and just make sure that the one jar file is in your compilation class path.

The last thing you need is multiple copies floating around that are likely to get out of version sync with each other.

Again, do not extract, do not copy!

And above all, do not ever copy it to your web application. Ever!

For Tomcat 6, the Servlet API is in servlet-api.jar, and the JSP API in jsp-api.jar.
