When i do the compile i get these errors:


This is really frustrating as i am following everything word for word in the book.

Does anyone see where i am going wrong?
If i have not given enough info please tell me what you need to help me sort this problem out

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
-Ben

Hi Ben,

if you try to compile your classes in the console window move into the src directory.

Type

javac com/example/web/BeerSelect.java

into the console and press enter.


That should work.

Kind regards

Hi thanks for your reply.

My Directory is set up like this (sorry if its a bit confusing this was the best way i could lay it out)

MyProject
|
beerV1
|
classes------|-----src
|-------------------|
com----------------com
|-------------------|
example-----------example
/-----\-------------/----\
web-model-------web-model

The way I am compiling is this:

cd ~/MyProject/beerV1
javac -d classes src/com/example/web/BeerSelect.java

So i have my .java files in the src part of the directory and when i compile them the .class file gets sent to the classes part of the directory

Check your directory and file names. Correct spelling, capitalized letters etc..
I get the same errors when I remove BeerExpert.java.

I have checked and double checked

Have you managed to compile my code?

Yes but I replaced the Servlet class with a normal class. How did you set the classpath of the servlet.jar file and what OS do you use?

my classpath is set like this:
CLASSPATH /Library/Tomcat/Home/lib/servlet-api.jar

I am on Mac OS X (version 15.5.5)

Im sorry please can you explain what you mean by "replaced the Servlet class with a normal class" i don't fully understand.

again, thanks for you time. I really appreciate it

The errors you get are normal environment errors, meaning there is something wrong with
your directory structure or your file names. It is not a special Servlet problem. The problem would occur also with a "normal" (non Servlet) class. I did not use a servlet class to simplify things. If you want to compile a servlet you must have the servlet jar files in your classpath settings otherwise the complier would not recognize the HttpServlet class.

It is worth trying compiling the classes one at a time, leaving the class with the main method until last. When you import a class from another package the compiler seems to think that class is already compiled and ready to go.

Or (if there aren't too many classes) compile a list of classes all together

javac mypackage/Class1.java myotherpackage/Class2.java

Or even
javac mypackage/*.java

You are right. (See compile Xlint Errors). The class file must be in the wrong directory or not existing.

Ben,

it is the best to simply your steps.

1) make sure that BeerExpert.java is in src/com/example/model
2) make sure that BeerExpert.class is src/com/example/model
3) move to the src directory
4) compile with javac -classpath /Library/Tomcat/Home/lib/servlet-api.jar com/example/model/BeerExpert.java com/example/web/BeerSelect.java
5) move the class files (manually) from the src subdirectories into the classes subdiretories

I tried this successfully. This time with a real Servlet class.

Good luck.

instead of this
cd ~/MyProject/beerV1
javac -d classes src/com/example/web/BeerSelect.java

try out
cd ~/MyProject/beerV1/src
javac -d classes -cp ../classes com/example/web/BeerSelect.java

For the error in the first post

This might be the better solution:

javac -classpath /Library/Tomcat/Home/lib/servlet-api.jar:.
-d classes src/com/example/web/BeerSelect.java
src/com/example/model/BeerExpert.java

Must be execute in beerV1.
