So, do you need to compile your Java code using the command line? Don’t worry, just follow type command and it will be very easy!
// If we are in the root of the application
javac -d ./bin -classpath /Applications/eclipse/servers/apache-tomcat-7.0.50/lib/servlet-api.jar src/com/base22/servlets/*.java
- -d: destination directory. In our example, the packages with bytecode will be generated into ./bin directory.
- -classpath (-cp) : do we need any other library? In this case, we are adding servlet-api.jar library.
- Last parameter indicates where are the *.java files.
