Hello I had made a couple of servlets today, one called doUploadVideo.java and the other one named doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo.java
What I did was I appended the old servlet, doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo.java with a reference to doUploadVideo.java
no errors inside the IDE (Eclipse Galileo)
When I compiled and distributed on test, I got this stack trace. I wanted to preserve the old code in case I needed to get it back (not using subversion or CVS right now) so I put the extension _old on one of the files. I am not sure if this caused a problem or not, can you help me?
Your doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo class cannot be compiled because it must be located in file doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo.java. I guess that "_old" is causing these issues. Just move the old source files to a different folder outside the current web application. Or better yet, use a versioning system like Subversion or CVS.
