Hi, I have a question about the deployment descriptor. Say,
<servlet name>this</servlet name>
<servlet class>thisServlet.class</servlet class>
I don't understand what this does. Do we now call "http://localhost:8080/servlet/this"
instead of
"http://localhost:8080/servlet/thisServlet"?

Essentially, yes - that set of tags establishes a name that the server will use and relates it to a servlet class. You should put the servlet class in a package to avoid confusion. Like I keep saying, download the Java Servlet API from java.sun.com and study it.

Check out the bottom of this thread http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum7/HTML/003771.html

p.s. to William. The API is not the easiest thing to find things in sometimes. And I have not been able to find how to write XML deploy descriptors in the servlet API. Could you tell *me* the page it's on?
