Re: How to compile Servlets?
No, you just use javac to compile as you always have. It doesn't matter
where you install the servlet development kit, only it contains a jar file
(called servlet.jar) which needs to be in your classpath for your compiles
to work. Since you're using JDK1.3, the easiest way to achieve this is to
just drop a copy of that jar file in the JDK's extension directory. For me
this is D:\jdk1.3.0\jre\lib\ext, modify that based on where you installed
