For us to help, I think you'll need to tell us a bit more about what you are using, and what you have done so far.
  • Which servlet container?
  • Have you checked that it is installed and running right for other web applications? (does it have a "demo", for example?)
  • How have you "added a context", and where have you put it?
  • Did you know that the .../servlet/... style of mapping is not a good idea and has a lot of problems?
  • How have you arranged your files and directories in your new "context"
  • Do you have a WEB-INF/web.xml file, and if so, what does it contain?
  • anything else which might be of interest?

  • Thanks.
