On The Java Build Path, The Superclass “javax.servlet.http.httpservlet” Was Not Detected In Java?

This error occurs when the necessary library for the servlet API is not included in the Java Build Path. To resolve this issue, you need to add the servlet API library to the build path.

Follow the steps below to add the servlet API library:

  1. Right-click on your project in the Eclipse project explorer.
  2. Select "Properties" from the context menu.
  3. In the project properties window, select "Java Build Path" from the left panel.
  4. Click on the "Libraries" tab.
  5. Click the "Add Library" button.
  6. Select "Server Runtime" from the list and click "Next".
  7. Select the appropriate server runtime environment (e.g., Apache Tomcat) and click "Finish".
  8. Click "OK" to close the project properties window.

This will add the required servlet API library to your project’s build path, and the error should be resolved.

If you are using a different IDE or build tool, the steps may be slightly different, but the concept is the same. You need to include the servlet API library in your project’s dependencies.
