I have a servlet mapping that looks something like this

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>myServlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/myServlet</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

What is being passed in looks like this www.example.com/myServlet?id=fas46t2

I would think the above mapping would catch it but it is getting a 404. Do I need to make some changes to account for the parameter being passed in?

I should add that this is running on Tomcat 7.0.5 and this is an outside call trying to reach the servlet.

thanks for the help.

Looks like you are missing the context path in the URL.
