    The servlet classes aren't (for some reason) included in the standard JDK. You need to get hold of either the Java Enterprise Edition, or "something else" such as Tomcat that can run Servlets (and whose Servlet classes you can also compile against).

    If you get the Java Enterprise Edition (remember, this is purely so you can pinch the Servlet classes -- you don't actually have to use this version of Java for anything as such), then the Servlet classes live inside a jar called "j2ee.jar". You need to make sure that this Jar is included in your project (e.g. in Eclipse, using the "Add External Jar" option in the project preferences).
