I am having problems accessing a servlet in Tomcat. I have declared the package name of the servlet class to be
Of course, i then have this structure in my WEB-INF/classes directory.
Problem is that whenever I try to access the Servlet online I get an error msg saying that the servlet is currently unavailable. Why is this? It works fine when I'm running it locally in localhost.

yes, I am. However, I've been thinking more about the problem and I think that it's because the server (Tomcat)needs to be restarted by my host in order for my servlets to load up. I have emailed support about this. Remember that this app works ok locally (locahost) but when i move it up the the kattare servers, then it tells me that the servlet is currently unavailable. In fact, none of the servlets which i upload will run online. Thanks.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
