Servlet program using command prompt

I am unable to compile the servlet class using command prompt.
When I compile it shows the error

cannot find symbol
import javax.servlet.*;

(and all other jar files related to the servlet)

i.e. it is unable to find the jar files.
I already set the environment varibles.
What may be the reason?

This means that you didn't put the proper jar file in your compilation classpath. This has been discussed countless times in the Beginning Java forum. Please search there fro your answer.
