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 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 file. I've done that for each of my servlets, as well as stop and restart the server after I compile. Hope this helps.
I agree. Here's the link:
