Need help with web.xml file

I want to create an web.xml page
I frequently access a servlet page with this command:
response.sendRedirect("http://localhost:8080/myJSPs/servlet/portalftp.ServletFaillogin");
Is it possible to avoid typing this tedious line by using the web.xml file?
Here is what I have tried:

so thus the code now becomes:
response.sendRedirect("http://localhost:8080/myJSPs/servlet/faillog");
2nd question:
I have put the web.xml file at this location:
C:\tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-3.3.1\webapps\myJSPs-XML\WEB-INF
The file ServletFaillogin.java and rest of Java pages are at:
C:\tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-3.3.1\webapps\myJSPs-XML\WEB-INF\classes\portalftp
and all my HTML and JSP pages are at:
C:\tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-3.3.1\webapps\myJSPs-XML\jsp\portal-project

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.
