I am working with the daniwebjsptutorial the first one.
I have a src and in it I have the resource.dir. I have the HttpServlet.jar there.
I do not know how to get the LoginServlet class to find it using eclipse.
Is there a standard entry point for the web app. I have the web.xml and the LoginServlet.java
and I added a view.Main.java to call the init() yet it has a param requirment ServletConfig config
So baically I can not get the entry point or the HttpServlet.jar worked out.
I did not use the same folders as in tje tutorial. I just started using eclipse. I am used to netbeans. I have been working on my build file. I am not sure how to use the MySQL Connecto/J driver and the HttpServlet.jar in the project.
When I go back to work on my build.xml i intended to srcdir from my src/resources and make sure all the dependencies are in destdir build/lib. I thought. I was supposed to make the build file add these to the class path. I worked with netbeans and it controlled all That and. It was a problem creating a standalone .jar.I

Eclipse does not show my jar files in tje resource package . They are there. I would like to have a main method for the app. How is this done in conjunction with a servlet and a web.xml?
I just ran the MySQL script I have all the classes and jsp all the tutoriak pieces are in place. The project can not be built until build path errors are resolved. There is no main and how do i deploy this tutorial?
I did wrote this tutorial 6 years ago, hopping to show people how to do scriplet-less Java web development. At the time I had no idea about build tools like Ant, Maven or Gradle and it was common to have lib directory in the project where you will put any library jars and then point your IDE to it to pick up as additional dependencies used in project.
I do not use Eclipse preffer IntelliJ studio, but in Eclipse you should be able to link jar files by doing following Click Properties > Java Build Path > Libraries > Click Add External Jars
From my point of view IntelliJ is far better then Eclipse handling build tools like Maven and Gradle (second is becoming more and more popular, well I have to addmit I do use it for Android development)
And of course you should not get tunnelvision and think that you're a programmer because you know a specific IDE.
When you get a different job, you're quite likely going to get a different toolset and have to rapidly learn to use that to the same degree of confidence you've built up over months or years using something else you're already familiar with.
