I tried to put two parameters from html form and get it to the servlet and then display it.

my servlet is located in C:\Tomcat\apache-tomcat-6.0.18\webapps\chapter1\WEB-INF\classes\LoginServlet.class

my html form is located in C:\Tomcat\apache-tomcat-6.0.18\webapps\name.html

i put html form action as <form method="GET" action="/chapter1/LoginServlet">


my web.xml file is as below .but when i put two parameters and click submit butten nothing happen .it should display what i entered.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee
http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd"

Classes ought to be placed in a package. Start with that.

That's what Bauke is pointing out. Put your servlet into a package and then change the web.xml to reflect the complete i.e. fully qualified name of the servlet class...

I had that same problem with my JSP page. It worked when I put my beans in a package.

The reason is that if the JVM trys to load a class not in a package, it looks in the "current" directory. In the servlet environment you have no control over the "current" directory, therefore ALL classes used in servlets MUST be in packages to avoid strange errors.

There are environments wherein packageless servlets work (combination of certain appserver implementation/version and certain JVM implementation/version), but you should never make your application dependent on that. Put classes in packages, period. Only then the other classes can import them.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
