Check your web.xml file that should be available in the root of web-inf. You'll need to look at servlet mappings to ensure that any requests made to "/servlet/myServlet1" are appropriately routed to the instance of your running servlet:

See item 3 under Configure Tomcat which discusses the "invoker" servlet.
I agree. Here's the link:
