I am not sure why I'm getting the following errors:

"The method getParameterMap() is undefined for the type HttpServletRequest"
"The method getRequestURL() is undefined for the type HttpServletRequest"

I have included servlet-api.jar in my java build path. (I'm using Eclipse).
When I look at the API, I see both methods are available.
Any idea why these errors are there?
