hi luca,
you can acces a servlet from any (maybe generated) html-page via a form.
first of all you should try to talk to your servlet directly. try to reach it with your browser.
for tomcat as your servlet-engine it would be:
for a servlet located at your machine:
the url depends on how you mapped the servlet in your web.xml.
if this works you can set your form-action to:
<form action="/examples/servlet/Helloworld" ../>
this would submit the form-data to your servlet.
I agree. Here's the link:
