Hi,
I have recently started working with servlets.My test servlet is not working.I'm using JDK1.4.2 & Tomcat4.1.27
I created a 'myApp' directory under M:\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\webapps.
And stored my 'testingServlet.class' file under
M:\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\webapps\myApp\WEB-INF\classes
And 'web.xml' is under M:\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\webapps\myApp\WEB-INF
Typing the following url
http://localhost:8080/myApp/servlet/testingServlet
gives http 404 error as below:

But the sample examples(bundled with Tomcat) are working fine.
Can somebody please tell me why is this problem occuring ?
Thank you
Raj

After creating the new directory under webapp, did you restart Tomcat? Futhermore, after compiliing the new servlet, you will need to restart Tomcat (depends on setting).

Hi
Yes I did restart Tomcat in all cases.
Do I have to change the conf\Server.xml ?
Thanks
Raj

In the deployment descriptor (web.xml) what is the url-pattern of your servlet? Do you have it mapped appropriately? You should see:
<servlet>
<servlet-name>testingServlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.test.servlet.TestingServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>testingServlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>servlet/testingServlet</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
