I am running jswdk-1.0.1 I have modified my classpath var and made other configs according to the "core Servlets & jsp" book.
I can get the servlet to compile, but I try to view it be directing my brower to http://localhost/servlet/HelloWorld and I get "the page cannot be displayed" the servlet is in the directory specified by jswdk: jswdk/webpages/web-inf/servlets
This is driving me crazy, if anyone could offer some help to get this going I would be eternally grateful.

Did you stop and restart the server after you compiled and placed the file in the */WEB-INF/Servlets directory? Also there is a file in the WEB-INF directory called servlets.properties. Open that file with notepad and add this code:
I hope this helps. I think you need to declare each servlet in this fashion in the servlets.properties file. I've done that for each of my servlets, as well as stop and restart the server after I compile. Hope this helps.
