It looks fine at first glance (except the strange class naming)
Which container are you using ?

Did you restart the container ?

And what does the following url display ?
http://localhost:8080/test/index.html

What is the full path of your index.html ?
Where did you put the "test" application in Tomcat ?

actually, i can run the servlet with tomcat but,

if i tried to run

http://localhost:8080

it displays

The page cannot be found
The page you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

No, I'm not a full time member
You are not using any other web servers (like IIS) ?

sojan,
In an effort to help you get the most from our forums, we've compiled a
list of tips for asking questions here. You can find the list in our
FAQ section here.
In particular please see:
UseRealWords

Abbreviations such as "u" or "ur" in
place of "you" and "you are" or "you're" confound language translation software making
it hard for our non-English speaking members to read your posts.
"plz" is not a word in the English language.

Again, welcome to JavaRanch and good luck with your question.
-Ben

Where, exactly, is your web.xml file?

Is it in a folder named [tomcat install]/webapps/test/WEB-INF
?

Everything seems to be good.

Are you sure that the test application is getting deployed without any errors?
Check for catalina log (check the console)and localhost log in log directory.This might help.

try to put that index.jsp in a folder called "jsp" in your WEB-INF folder or put that jsp out side of your WEB-INF folder
