I am new to servlets.

I am trying to call my servlet from a HTML form. I dont want to use full url in action tag that will point to my servlet. I want to use relative path.

I am using tomcat 6 web server. If I am giving relative path in Action tag of HTML form, it is searching in C:\myApp\Servlet.

Please help me how I can use relative path in Tomcat server. If these is any other setting needs to be done for my application folder for relative path.


Thanks in advance.

There is nothing Tomcat specific about this.

Your URLs should be server-relative and never page-relative. That is, they should start wit the the context path. See the JspFaq for details.

It would be helpful if you can give an example HTML form calling a servlet.
