I have installed TomCat. I am write a small Java Servlet
example. I compile it. Errors!. Seems like HTTPServet and other Servlet related classes are not found. Now the question is... Do I need to install J2EE too to compile this?

>>Do I need to install J2EE too to compile this?

The short answer is no. Your problem is probably to do with paths (you don't say anything detailed about your Tomcat version, platform, jdk etc)

In your compile-time environment, include in your CLASSPATH variable the following libraries:

$TOMCAT_HOME/common/lib/*.jar

You will probably be fine by just including servlet.jar from that location.

These class libraries will be automatically included by Tomcat in the run-time environment.

Download Tomcat 4.0.3. But the CLASSPATH issue I mentioned also works for 3.2.3.

Be careful with Windows ME, threads are somewhat tricky under that ..umm... (do we really call that an operating system :-) ... thing...
