servlet not found

I'm new to servlets and Java Script. I'm trying to call a java script file(TestScript.js) from a servlet, but getting the error "Servlet not found : TestScript.js"
Here's my code :
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;
public class Test extends HttpServlet {
public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)
throws ServletException, IOException {
PrintWriter out = res.getWriter();
out.println("<script language=\"JavaScript\" src=\"TestScript.js\"> </script>");

Why is the Java script file(.js) being treated as a servlet? some where I read that it should be moved from servlets directory to any other directory. How to specify the path for .js?
Thank u for ur time

I guess you are getting that error because your browser thinks the /servlet directory is the directory you want and everything in that address is supposed to be a servlet.
The solution would be to give a complete address for the js file rather than the relative address and it should be stored like any other resource for an HTML file.

Copy "TestScript.js" in to root:\javawebserver2.0\servlets directory. I think now it should work fine without any errors.
An alternate solution is, copy "TestScript.js" in to root:\javawebserver2.0\public_html and change the path in the src as follows:

out.println("<script language=\"JavaScript\" src=\"/TestScript.js\"> </script>");
This should work fine without any errors.
I agree. Here's the link:
