Hello friends,
I am using Tomcat 5.5. Can you tell me that what should be in the classpath?
This is my present classpath.

"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\commons-el.ja
r";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\jasper-run
time.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\nam
ing-factory-dbcp.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\co
mmon\lib\jasper-compiler.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomca
t 5.5\common\lib\jsp-api.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomca
t 5.5\common\lib\naming-resources.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundat
ion\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\jasper-compiler-jdt.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apache Soft
ware Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\naming-factory.jar";"C:\Program Files\Apac
he Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\servlet-api.jar";

Should any change needs to be done here?

There should not be anything specific to tomcat in the classpath.Even the classpath is ignored by the tomcat's classloaders.

But for compilation of servlet java sources you would need to put the jar in the classpath which has the required classes.
What exactly is your issue ?

Hey,thanks for replying.
Regarding the above classpath mentioned,
can i put
"C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\common\lib\*.jar"
in the classpath instead of mentioning all the jar files seperately?

You need to mention each JAR individually.

What are you trying to do?

Like Raul said, Tomcat ignores your classpath when running.

If you are setting up your classpath for developing servlets, the only thing from Tomcat that you should need on your classpath is tomcat/common/lib/servlet-api.jar.

To reiterate what Rahul and Ben have said:

- For running Tomcat, you don't need to put anything in your classpath.

- For developing servlets, you'll need the servlet-api.jar file in your classpath.
