Dear all i cannot compile the following java program, SlideTag.java

//package media;
package com.sun.estore.taglib;

import javax.servlet.jsp.*;
import javax.servlet.jsp.JspException;
import javax.servlet.jsp.tagext.TagSupport;
import RTPTransmit;


public class SlideTag extends TagSupport
{
      private String IPAddress = new String();
      private int port;
      private String type = new String();
      private String locator = new String();
      private long duration = 0;
      private String hasvideo = new String();
      private String hasaudio = new String();
      public String code = new String();
      
      public SlideTag(){super();}
      
}

the following error occurs

package javax.servlet.jsp does not exist
import javax.servlet.jsp.*;

i'm using jdk1.3.1 and SlideTag.java is saved in jdk1.3.1/bin
Any help would be greatly appreciated....

You need to add servlet.jar to your classpath....

I know servlet.jar comes with tomcat

and I think it comes with J2EE

PS:  Assuming you have tomcat, in version 4.1 it is in

/tomcat/common/lib

Unless it's Tomcat 5, then you need servlet-api.jar

Also, I would strongly recommend that you change the location that you are saving your .java files!

Create a separate working directory for each of your projects and put the source files in that.  You shouldn't be adding anything to the JDK's bin directory.

It's OK Tim ;-)

Hmm.  Better get a move on before the men arrive to take you away.  Can you hear the siren in the distance?
