Hi, Friends

The login is jsp file. When submit button clicked a servlet is called and it should be redirect according to the parameter passed from the login page. i use tomcat 6.0 server.
if value is correct it should open another page otherwise it remain in the same page(login).

We found the following while executing:

The requested resource (/PTS/servlet/login) is not available.

We having the jsp and servlets in separate folders. like
Locations of the files:

JSP : PTS/Login.jsp
method : post
action : /PTS/servlet/login

SERVLET : PTS/web-inf/classes/login.class

Thanks in advance

The request URL must match the url-pattern of the servlet mapping of the servlet in question in the web.xml.
