The use of a URL containing /servlet/ is what is causing you trouble. Read this FAQ on the invoker servlet.

Hey Gaurav


Can you post the part of your web.xml that contains the servlet and servlet-mapping elements. and also the path where you have your servlet stored.

Maybe one of these is the cause.

Also check if your firstservlet.class is in WEB-INF\classes directory
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
