Thanks muchly for the assistance previously. I fixed the classpath and the placement and it works better.
Now a new problem, database connection and query work fine now but my computer is treating getting the servlet page not as a webpage but as a downloadable file of which I need to chose. The code that follows is all that is applicable:

I hope someone can help me I feel so close and none of my books cover this type of error.
Thank you in advance

If the parameter to setContentType of response Object is other than text/html the servlet will start get downloading.Check what is the content type u set for the response object in your code
