i have a question relating to
I am using
for my server.
I am calling a servlet from a html form action
as follows -
<form method="get" action="/myapplication/MyServlet">
<Input types -- >
<-- different input types here--->
where myapplication is the name of my folder kept in webapps of Tomcat.
My servlet is kept in WEB-INF/classes, I have not used any package to keep the servlet in, it is directly inside classes.
My deployment discriptor ie web.xml is kept in WEB-INF.
the url mapping is -
but still when I press submit on my html page it gives 404 error and says /myapplication/MyServlet is not available.
Thanks in advance.

Please check the DOCBASE property of your application in the file of server.xml which is available in YOUR_TOMCAT_FOLDER/conf.
Without that the server can not find your application.
good luck (- -)V

I have not used any package to keep the servlet in,
Experience suggests that this is a bad idea. Just do that little bit of extra effort, put ALL classes used with
in a package, and avoid many mysterious bugs.

I assume these are exerpts from your deployment descrptor and that you've
got full <servlet> and <servlet-mapping> entries.
<servlet-name>MyServlet</servlet-name> <servlet-class>MyServlet</servlet-class> <url-pattern>MyServlet</url-pattern>
