I installed  the jdk1.3 and  javawebserver2.0 in  my sytem. I set the path as f:\jdk1.3\bin; f:\javawebserver2.0\bin;  and i set the javahome as jdk1.3;

Then i wrote a simple standalone program(hello program). it worked perfectly. then i wrote a servlet program. i tried to compile the program. i got the error.
i installed the jdk and javawebserver in F drive.
my program is in
d:\aaaa\bbbb\ccccc\Home.java (servlet program).


the error is
package javax.servlet does not exist
import javax.servlet.*;
^
package javax.servlet.http does not exist
import javax.servlet.http.*;
^

I believe that the javax.servlet package is not part of the standard jdk. Typically the package is delivered via the servlet engine your using (java web server). That application should have s jar file (servlet.jar) that contains the classes for javax.servlet and subpackages. Make sure that servlet.jar is included in your classpath for compilation.

corey is right it is not a part of standard jdk (J2SE). It is included as a part of enterprise jdk (J2EE) available from sun.

try running  this as batch file before compiling

set classpath = %classpath%; f:\javawebserver2.0\lib\servlet.jar;

What code??? servlet.jar just needs to be included in the classpath, and there are many ways to do this. And it doesn't necessarily even require any code, in fact the preferable solution, which is to include it in your classpath at startup, does not.

I met similar problem and solve it by adding servlet.jar offered by Tomcat to classpath.
