The directory structure looks OK as far as it goes.
You don't give any indication of what's in your web.xml. Have you mapped your servlet(s) to a URL path? Are you using the correct mapped path in your HTML? Do you get any errors in the container log files?

Put the classes in a package - it eliminates so many odd problems.

Hi Michael!
1.Open web.xml available under <Servlet Installation Directory>/conf
2.Set url-pattern to /servlet/* for servletname "Invoker" under servlet-mapping tag.
Save this file.
call in the browser :
http://ipaddress ortno/servlet/<here name of the servlet>

Since there really is no JSP component to this topic, I'm moving this along to the Servlets Forum.
