It fixed the issue... When accessing the jsp i ended up with the following error.. Which i thing is correct. Let me know that is not correct.
org.apache.jasper.JasperException: /bookmark2.jsp(11,6) Scripting elements ( <%!, <jsp:declaration, <%=, <jsp:expression, <%, <jsp:scriptlet ) are disallowed here.
There are two different declartions of web.xml in the page pointed by you and i see that they correspond to particular spec of servlet and JSP. Isn't it ??
How do i verify which version of servlet and JSP i am using?
