The default package is for trivial command line apps and shouldn't be used web applications. You may get a servlet to work using it but as soon as you start to structure a more serious web app correctly, you're going to have problems locating beans and other objects from within your JSP pages.
For example a class named SimpleServlet in the package com.javaranch.servlet in a webapp named SimpleServlet would go in: tomcat/webapps/SimpleServlet/WEB-INF/classes/com/javaranch/servlet/SimpleServlet.class
