Beginner question about where to put servlet for application run under Tomcat

I'm trying to create my first
Let say my first application, I tried to put the .class file inside /apps/servlet then I tested the URL but I got HTTP 404 error.
I also tried putting it under /apps/WEB-INF/classes but it also gives me the same error.
Can someone please advise?
Thanks in advance for all the help.

Classes should go under /WEB-INF/classes, following package notation. So if the class is bar.baz.MyFirstServlet.class its directory location would be /WEB-INF/classes/bar/baz/MyFirstServlet.class.
The servlet also needs to be mapped, however; mere existence in the classpath isn't enough: for example, see
or search the web for other examples.

Have you read the Servlet Specification? If not, do so before writing another single line of code.
