Two issues:
1.) You've spelled your servlet-name "ListDisplayt" (note the 't' at the end).
2.) Your url-pattern is /simpleServlet. Is that what you are using when you try to access your servlet?

Also, you're starting off on a bad foot by not packaging all of your Java class names. You might be able to get this servlet working without it being packaged but as soon as you start adding beans to your project, things are going to blow up on you.

The default package (no explicit package name) is for trivial command line apps, not web applications.

In your HTML, your form has no closing tag.

Have you changed the action attribute since you last posted the form?
Did you cut and paste the HTML to the ranch or did you type it?

After packaging your classes and changing your web.xml file, did you restart your app or Tomcat?

The error message you're posting doesn't match the url that you've posted.

type Status report
message /EmailList/simpleServlet
description The requested resource (/EmailList/simpleServlet) is not available.

doesn't match

Yes, i noticed the change in url-pattern but waited to read till the end. There Ben exactly asked for the same.

You need to just look at the url string what you have in your form action! that's where probably it would have gone wrong!

The URL in the form's action attribute is not necessarily wrong.
It just doesn't match the URL given in the error message.
I'm wondering if you're either editing the wrong file or if you're not giving us the the most up to date information.

In order to get that error message, the URL in the form's action attribute would have to be "/EmailList/simpleServlet" or "/simpleServlet".

Either that or your HTML page is in webapps/ROOT/EmailList instead of being in webapps/EmailList.

Something on your server isn't matching what you're posting here.
