Solution :

1. For an Ant project:

Please make sure you have servlet-api.jar in the lib folder.

2. For a Maven project:

Please make sure you have the dependency added in POM.xml.


3. Another way to do it is

Please update the project facets to pick up the right server.

Please check this box in this location:

Project → Properties → Target Runtimes → Apache Tomcat (**any server**)
