RequestDispatch again...

Many posts around this subject here, at this forum. I thought I understood how to use it but apparently I am missing something. I try to forward the processing from one servlet to another; when both servlets are in the same directory it works just fine but it's not what I want. I want the servlet TestServlet1 in the directory "web-inf/classes" to forward all reuqests to the servlet TestServlet2 in the directory "web-inf/classes/login".
, where "sc" is a valid reference to the ServletContext. The deployment descriptor specifies entries for both servlets, as following:

The error I'm getting is 404, Page not Found.
I thought I played by the book, can you tell me what is wrong?

I've tried to delete the post to hide my stupid mistake but I couldn't... I have to live with that
