i am running tomcat6.0.13.
i have made a connectionservlet of package table and compiled it and stored it in the ROOT directory.
when i give the following URL http://localhost:8180/servlet/table.connectionservlet
tomcat returns the following error -
type Status report

message /servlet/table.connectionservlet

description The requested resource (/servlet/table.connectionservlet) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/6.0.13

I have also tried to copy this file to WEB-INF/classes/table directory and then give the following URL http://localhost:8180/WEB-INF/classes/servlet/table/table.connectionservlet
still i get the same error.

Kindly help.

Recent versions of Tomcat do not allow direct access to servlets by default.
You'll need to configure a servlet entry and a servlet mapping in your deployment descriptor (web.xml).

The component that allowed this was called the InvokerServlet.
It's still in Tomcat but its configuration settings have been commented out.
To learn why, go here.
