How to run Servlets with Weblogic 6.1

I wish to create one web page with HTML + Java servlets & JDBC.
I have compiled my servlet & put the class file in the folder
and the HTML file in the folder "C:\bea\wlserver6.1\config\mydomain\applications\DefaultWebApp". I have modified the "web.xml" file as per the instructions. The problem is I can open the HTML page from the webserver, but I couldn't run the servlet. It is giving some error message like "Error 404: Could not locate the URL". I have specified the path in the HTML as
"http//localhost ort/servletname"
Can anyone help me how to come out of this problem?

You're better off packaging up the app in a WAR file and using the WLS console app to load it. Within the WAR, the html and JSPs goe at the root (assuming simple naming) and the servlet and support classes go in the WEB-INF/classes (or WEB-INF/lib, if JAR'ed). WAR form is a standard for J2EE regardless of what brand of server you use.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
