Tomcat setting wrong content type

I have developed a Java application that uses HTTP. The app is divided into a client-side and a server-side. All communication is with HTTP between the client app and the servlet.
I am using the Forte IDE when I run Tomcat in the IDE everything works. However, when I try to run standalone tomcat, I get a 404 error on the POST.
I am sure that this is just a configuration error, can anyone help.

404 means Tomcat can't find the resource you post to.
Make sure you have your servlet (I guess) installed correctly inside your standalone Tomcat, and your application pointing to the correct URI for it.

I agree. Here's the link:
