HttpServletRequest jar file

I am trying to develop a Crowd plugin, but getting stuck on HttpServletRequest (and its wrapper class) unresolved. Per Crowd documentation, it only required JDK 1.6 and hence I did not install JEE. By any chance are these classes only available in J2EE? Can you point me to a JAR file that I can download to resolve the issue? I am using Eclipse and I have tried referencing the servlet-api.jar from tomcat lib folder. That jar file only goes up to javax.servlet.http.*, but does not include the ....http.HttpServletRequest nor HttpServletRequestWrapper classes. Any help would be much appreciated.

You should put this in your pom:


Hi Jamie,

I am a .NET / C# developer and I am dealing with a huge learning curve with Servlets and Eclipse. I understand Project Object Model xml needs to be created for the project I am building? With Eclipse I am stumbling on all kinds of names like Maven, Indigo, Mylyn etc. Searching for pom.xml on the drive yields several in Eclipse folders under features and configuration folders. Am I to copy / paste one of these into my project folder to start? Any pointers to a very good quick read tutorial or book will get me started.

Thanks in advance.


Hi Ganesh, well, the learning cliff is quite steep. Start by creating a project from an archetype in the Atlassian SDK. Googling for Atlassian SDK will get you what you need. That will create your pom.
