Subject Re: Tomcat setup question.

When you add jars to the classpath you have to add the (full name of the)
jar itself, not just the directory where it lives.
If the classes are unpacked (i.e. you've unzipped the jar), then you just
add the directory.
Does that help?

Mike.

Don't panic, just attach a sample servlet that you were trying to
compile to the list. I'll have a look at it and try to get it to compile
ok? The javac -classpath should work by the way.
