I'm new to Java and Eclipse. I have installed Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers Version: Oxygen.3a Release (4.7.3a).

I have created a simple Dynamic Web Project which will be deployed to WebLogic Server 12.2.1.3.

I added a jsp file to the project but it got this marker The superclass "javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet" was not found on the Java Build Path.

How do I resolve that marker?

Is that type on the Java Build Path? Is the project targeting a Server? That class should be provided by the server you're using in the project.

I was able to resolve the issue by adding javax.servlet.javax.servlet-api.jar to the WebContent\WEB-INF\lib. I copied that jar file from WebLogic 12.2.1.3 server installed on a linux server. I'm not sure whether this is the correct or recommended way to resolve the issue.

If I understand correctly about targeting a server, it means that I need to have WebLogic server installed on my machine first.
