I didn't notice the web.xml make much difference except messing up (JSPs become invisible to Tomcat - 404) the whole setup (requiring tomcat reboot) if I do this: <url-pattern>JavaTomek_v1</url-pattern>
any ideas about what's happening? I promise to post the solution here when this thing gets working

QUICK UPDATE: turns out the initial problem was the fact that I needed to deploy COMPILED servlets, not sources. So much for making the wrong initial assumptions. That stems from an insanely positive experience of using another host service, where all one needs is to drop SOURCES into the appropriate places.
... so now, I've added NetBeans 4.0 to mess and was able to mirror the live projects structure in NetBeans. After compiling and uploading the sources, now I'm getting this Unknow Source error:
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: MultipartRequest at org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServletWrapper.service(Unknown Source)
... rest of error printout skept ....
The web.xml file is the same one from yesterday, so do I have a web.xml error or pathing error in the JSP file?
