servlet.jar

Hey all -- it's me again :)

Basically, I've installed Tomcat 5.5, and it doesn't have the servlet.jar file....?

According to my book, it should have this:  server_root/lib/servlet.jar
However, the directory 'lib' didn't even exist until I created it! :o\

How and where can I download any APIs that I need?

I currently only have  J2SDK1.4 installed, and haven't downloaded J2EE yet. But Surely you can compile the Class files fine without J2EE, as long as you have the javax.servlet APIs, right? (Which I don't have).

So -- any help please? :)

Thanks in advance,
[r.D]

No worries :-)

Just as a note, Tomcat 5.5 is a beta version, so you might hit more bugs than usual (or none at all) ;-)

Good luck with it all tho :-)
