I was trying to run a servlet program in Tomcat. I placed the compiled a.class file in the directory of WEBAPP/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes, however when I try to run http://localhost/servlet/a, Tomcat can't find the file. How should I set up the Tomcat so that this will work.
Thanks in advance.

I had this problem once. Though i dont have a solution, it worked when i put my servlet in a package.
Try putting class a in a package. Copy to your classes dir and access via
See if this works.
And can some one shed light on why this happens?

Hi, Pravin. Thanks for the suggestion. However for my case, seems it doesn't work even if I put the class in a package. Suggested by someone else, I solved the problem by modifying the web.xml. Looks like Tomcat4.1 doesn't support servlet class by calling the full qualified classname.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
