i created a java servlet file.. and compiled it and added the class file in root/web-inf/classes folder..
in the action of the form i used /servlet/registration
but when i try to run the serlvet the page displays a message :
The requested resource (/servlet/Registration) is not available.
where is the bug?

Your catalog is 'ROOT', so you have to access the servlet by the form like '/Registration'.
The accessing was right if you deployed the servlet's url pattern in the web.xml like '/servlet/Registration'.

Try "../servlet/Registration"

Your use of the "/servlet/..." style of URL requires the Invoker servlet - see any of the recent threads about "servlet can't start" and similar problems.
I agree. Here's the link:
