Default javax.servlet problem

I am writing a class for using it in a JSP but got stuck in compiling the class (.java file).

I am getting compilation error for the following line:
import javax.servlet.http.*;

I have a method in a class as follows:

  public void addPropertyChangeListener(PropertyChangeListener l) {

For the type PropertyChangeListener I think I have to import javax.servlet.http.*

I have jdk1.2.2 installed in my m/c. I am getting the compilation error:
"Package javax.servlet.http not found in import."

Please help me to get rid off this problem

Thanks in advance

first u need javax package which can be found with JavaServletDevelopmentKit(Jsdk)
Check your class path.
it should contain path to javax directory and \lib\tools.jar

I may be mistaken but the PropertyChangeListener interface is part of the java.beans package and not thr javax.servlet.http package.

You can look at the api reference at the following link:
