Default Error: Cannot resolve symbol "Beginning JSP"

hi , i have started with "beginning JSP web development" and got stuck on chapter 7 about classes. when i try to compile a code i get "cannot resolve symbol"

i followed the instruction on the book on how to install java & tomcat. I also followed the instruction on how to set the environmental variable including the CLASSPATH. I'm using windows 2000 NT. I currently have the classpath set as (under system variable):

        CLASSPATH c:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\common\lib\servlet.jar;.

I have the files: Book.java, Book.class, TechnicalBook.java & ChildrenBook.java under the following directory:

c:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\webapps\begjsp-ch07\WEB- INF\classes\com\wrox\library

I'm trying to compile TechicalBook and ChildrenBook and in the code it extends Book. I was able to compile Book.java successfully. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

By the way, I have posted the same problem on the Beginning JSP forum but nobody was still able to help. Here's how I'm doing it and the error code I'm getting:

C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0\webapps\begjsp-ch07\WEB-INF\classes\com\wrox\library>javac TechnicalBook.java
TechnicalBook.java:3: cannot resolve symbol
symbol : class Book
location: class com.wrox.library.TechnicalBook
public class TechnicalBook extends Book {
1 error

You should either wait for an answer in the other forum- as there is someone who is trying to help you (note that the person helping you is from India and on a different daytime schedule than you)... Your other option is to contact APRESS and see if they can assist- as the book was not purchased by Wiley.

The technical support people don't read this forum- any technical posts made here are just moved to the right place...
