    How to compile Servlets?


    I've downloaded the JDK1.3 and have used javac to compile and run some simple
    apps (on Win NT 4) . Being an impatient type that wants to jump ahead to
    writing servlets, I downloaded the JSDK2.1, but am having trouble figuring
    out how to compile servlet code.

    There isn't any javac.exe file in the JSDK, so I tried using the JDK's version
    - and of course it gives compile errors because it can't find the servlet
    class methods that are referenced in the code.

    Should the jsdk be installed in the same directory as the JDK? Are there
    version compatibility issues? I'm sure setting this up is fairly straight
    forward for those of you in the know ( but I sure could use a clue or two
    )

    Thanks in advance

    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
    your JDK.
