    Post up the full text of the error message you get. Java error messages generally tell you what the problem is.

    Re: java servlet not compiling

    Really need more information about how you are trying to run this. Are you trying to run this within the tomcat container? Did you create the folder structure under "webapps/" yourself and place the compiled class out there? Did you create the TOMCAT_HOME and CATALINA_HOME environment variables?

    Re: java servlet not compiling

    This error:
    Code:
    C:\jwork>javac Howdyservlet.java
    Howdyservlet.java:3: package java.servlet.http does not exist
    import java.servlet.http.*;
    ^
    Tells you what is wrong. HttpServlet is in package javax, not java. Change the import statement to
    Code:
    import javax.servlet.http.*;
    If you are still getting a package not found error, try this:

    Code:
    c:\>javac HowdyServlet.java -cp ".;C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\lib\servlet.jar".
    and see if you get the same error. If not, there is something wrong with the way you set your classpath. If so, the jars are still not being found.

    Let us know if you need more help.
