hi guys, I am trying to execute the servlet program for listener example give in Head First Book. I have placed all the java files (Dog, ListenerTester and MyServletContextListener) in the same path. Dog class is getting compiled successfully but the other two classes are showing the "Cannot find symbol(Dog)" error. Dog class is public but still it's not able to recognize it while compiling. I am compiling the file in CMD using the following command :
javac -classpath C:\apps\apache-tomcat-5.5.34\common\lib\servlet-api.jar -d classes "C:\Documents and Settings\372162\My Documents\J2EE_Practice\MyProjects\listener-Ex\src\com\example\web\ListenerTester.java"
It's working now. I was not including the Dog.class's path in the classpath. It worked with the following command :
javac -classpath "C:\apps\apache-tomcat-5.5.34\common\lib\servlet-api.jar;C:\Documents and Settings\372162\My Documents\J2EE_Practice\MyProjects\listener-Ex\classes" -d classes "C:\Documents and Settings\372162\My Documents\J2EE_Practice\MyProjects\listener-Ex\src\com\example\web\MyServletContextListener.java"
