The file reverse.html is in c:\orion\default-web-app
The file ReverseServlet.class is in
c:\orion\default-web-app\WEB-INF\classes
When the browser is pointed to http://localhost/reverse.html , it processes the html file but on pressing submit button , its unable to locate //localhost/servlet/ReverseServlet file.
Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance

The files are in the correct places. What is the exact error message you are getting?

Hi Marilyn,
The error is: Http 404 not found [ servlet class file ]
One more thing , I am using doPost to get the user parameter and
doGet to send back the processed information. Is it ok? If I substitute a different servlet file in form's action attribute then the server is able to find it.
Thanks,
jytsika

I think you have your doGet and doPost reversed. Normally people use doGet to get the original page and doPost when you press the submit button.
