With the servlet-mapping tag in place, you shouldn't need /servlet in your url. It also appears that you have a problem with your context. Your webapp folder is called myJSPs-XML, but you are typing myJSPs in your URL. Unless you have changed your context in the Tomcat configuration file, that shouldn't work.
