Maybe this isn't related to RAP, but the solutions I've tried from the web don't work for one reason or another, and I have a feeling I'm missing something obvious. I'm hoping someone can just answer the question and I can get this handled.

I'm trying to add in the lines to read a parameter passed in via the URL. Right now, I've put in the following test lines:

import org.eclipse.rwt.*;
HttpServletRequest request = RWT.getRequest();
String var1 = request.getParameter( "var1" );
String var2 = request.getParameter( "var2" );

I'm seeing the error:

HttpServletRequest cannot be resolved to a type.

I've done a lot of searching, but nothing I've found resolves the error. I suspect I'm just not importing the right thing, but from my searches it looks like the "right thing" is javax.servlet.*, but while that's in the build path, I can't import it.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Sean.

Sean,

if with 'importing' you refer to specifying OSGi package-imports, then
you'll also want to import javax.servlet.http. This is the package where
HttpServletRequest is in.

Yeah, but I couldn't import it and I couldn't figure out why. Finally a nice person here took pity on me and explained that javax.servlet not only had to be in my bundles, but in my dependencies. That fixed the issue.

Thanks.

Sean.
