Servlet does not run

Hi, I am a greenhorn of Java. Please help me.
I am using Tomcat as my servlet container, and I create a web application under the directory of
"$TomcatHome$/webapp". All the Jsps run well, but when I put a servlet under "/WEB-INF/classes" and run it, I meet an error: "The requested resource (/jsp10/servlet/srv_intro) is not available".
I have specified the context for this web application in server.xml.
Waiting for your help.

There have been a number of disucssions of similar problems in the servlets forum in the past week, all related to configuration in web.xml - browse the last week or so.
