Hi,
Do I need to create servlet definition in web.xml file. My understating is optional,
With tomcat 5 I was not able to access the sample servlet.
I have sample servlet in webapps/scwd/WEB-INF/class directory (No package name used)
I am using the following URL, its giving me the error message.
http://localhost:8080/scwd/servlet/TestingServlet

reference URL:

Is any thing changed in new specification?
