Hi ,

I am new to java servlets I am getting The requested resource is not available.

I am having one mainpage.jsp where I am trying to submit using the form action"" and in web.xml proper servlet name and mapping is done.

Please let me know what is wrong with the below code in .jsp and web.xml

IN MainPage.jsp

<form action="databasedetails" method="post">

In this .jsp page when i click on submit button it is not calling the
servlet DBDetailsServlet...

and in web.xml

<servlet>
<servlet-name>DBDetailsServlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.abc.DBDetailsServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>DBDetailsServlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/databasedetails</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

Thanks in advance .

Your form action is incomplete. It needs to be in the format:

/contextpath/servletmapping

"orion asd",
Welcome to JavaRanch!

We're pleased to have you here with us in the servlets forum, but there
are a few rules that need to be followed, and one is that proper names are
required. Please take a look at the
JavaRanch Naming Policy and
adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

You can change it here
