I could not find a FAQ on their site that had the simple answer to what could be probably the first question that everybody asks that has a new account on www.mycgiserver.com:
Where in my DIR do the servlets go (I already have a /servlet DIR) and what would be the URL to invoke a servlet in my site, assuming that my username is "user"?
Thanks

I'm guessing you already found out the answer but here goes anyway.
You need only place the servlet in what is your root directory. And you invoke it by using the URL of the form.. <A HREF="http://www.mycgiserver.com/servlet/<I rel="nofollow">username</I>.HelloWorld" TARGET=_blank>www.mycgiserver.com/servlet/username.HelloWorld
If you've placed your servlets in a subdirectory, I'm not sure. Also you have to place each servlet in a package based on your username (i.e. package username; ). I believe that the package name that you compile the servlet to be in will reflect the directory structure by default. So you could declare the package for your servlet to reflect the subdirectory you created "/servlet" (i.e. package username.servlet; ). As far as the URL to call the servlet. I'm not quite sure. I would guess something like <A HREF="http://www.mycgiserver.com/servlet/<I rel="nofollow">username</I>.servlet.HelloWorld." TARGET=_blank>www.mycgiserver.com/servlet/username.servlet.HelloWorld.
This is probably an abandoned thread by now but if helps someone else with the same question then that's what I intended. However if you didn't get your answer sooner, better late than never.

Cheers,
