I think your servlet class or one of its member has wrong access modifier.
I'm not sure what is wrong without viewing your code, but I think your servlet class and/or its member(s) have package-private (=default) access, and container is complaining about that. [ September 02, 2008: Message edited by: Bupjae Lee ]
I had a similar problem but the reason which I found out was quite different.I work on the same project from two different locations one from home and other from office through different systems.I am using Eclipse as IDE on both locations. I exported my servlets and jsp from office to home. Then I changed Server Settings(Apache 7) and my servlets were running fine. But when I created a new servlet it failed to instantiate. It was showing the same error code and message as your problem suggests. It took me some time to solve the problem by hit and trial method by when I excluded the earlier version and location of Apache ( Jar file from Java Build Path-Library in Eclipse) the problem solved for me miraculously. I wish it can be useful for you only if you are having same problem scenario.
