setting a servlet

I�m trying to convince my first servlet to work ;-)
My weblogic 5.1 serves the following � http://ny1715:7001/mywebapp/index.html
index.html has the following form �
<form action="/mywebapp/servlet/GreetingServlet" method="post">
In the directory - mywebapp\WEB-INF\classes I have the class GreetingServlet.class
The mywebapp\WEB-INF\web.xml contains the following �
When submitting the form I get a 404 page.
Any ideas?

I have never used Weblogic, so this might not be much help - but are you sure you are using port 7001? Also, does Weblogic have some sort of default page that comes up when you go to http://localhost:<portnumber>? Try seeing if it works first.

http://ny1715:7001/mywebapp/index.html served the initial page.
The servlet wasn't reached.

Hai Drich!
In addition to what u have given in xml file u also need to give following info,,,
Servlet Name goes here
URI u want

and then in action of form change URL to /UR applcation/URI u want .
Also check whether web component for ur application is registered in config.xml file of ur server

With Weblogic you also need to register servlet in file. This doesn't just apply for servlets, any beans also need to ber registered.

  25 is for WebLogic 5.1. The XML form took over in WLS 6.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
