Hello, I read that a server knows a servlet by the alias name. On Allaire Jrun, How do I define alias for the servlet: Specifically, 1)If my servlet class file (Eg. HelloServlet.class) resides in this directory c:\Program Files\Allaire\JRun\servers\default\default-app\web-inf\classes, then what should be my fully qualified servlet class name ? can servlet name and display name be the same ? 2)What should be my address in the web-browser for running this alias servlet ? Currently, I run it with this address: http://localhost:8100/servlet/HelloServlet I can run with class name, but just don't know how to refer it with an alias name ? Please help. Thankyou, Vishakha
in the def-app directory there is a web.xml file which u have to edit to access ur servlet. like the following servlet-name snoop description snoop servlet servlet-class SnoopServlet servlet-mapping servlet-name snoop url-pattern /servlet/snoop2/* servlet-mapping

Thanks for the reply. However JRun gives a GUI to make these changes and they are autimatically reflected in the xml. I tried changing this xml file, and my default-server wouldn't start "error: exited abnormally, check event log file" When I restored the xml to its original state, server started alright. Now, I'm back to square one.
