I am learning JB0ss by going through the Getting Started Guide (jboss version 2.3.6, Guide version 3.2.x, so that should match). I downloaded Duke's bank app and jbossj2ee-src.zip, and unpacked it in the proper directories. So far so good, but when I try to build (ant -f jboss-build.xml compile) I get a lot of package not found errors. From what I see, I can infer that servlet.jar is missing form .../server/default/lib. I studied the jboss-build.xml file, and noticed that it is looking for javax.servlet.jar, which is also missing.
I copied another servlet.jar to .../server/default/javax.servlet.jar which solved some of the missing package problems, but many others remain. I assume that the jar I copied is not the correct one, but this raises the following questions that I hope you are able to answer:
1. Why is an important file like javax.servlet.jar missing? 2. Is my assumption correct taht this file contains more packages than regular servlet.jars? 3. Where can I find an appropriate javax.servlet.jar?
