Hi all,
I have a java file named Ch1Servlet.java under project1/src directory
there is classes directory project1/classes and web.xml under src directory
project1/src directory.
Now to compile i have to give %javac -classpath /your path/tomcat/common/lib/servlet-api.jar -d classes src/Ch1Servlet.java
What is this your path ? Tomcat 5.0 is installed in C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\common\lib with servlet-api.jar
Please help me out.
Best Regards
Tanka

It is over. I compiled it in the src folder and then put the class file
in ch1/classes folder that was put inside webapps. also the web-inf folder was inside ch1.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
