eclipse Dynamic web Project + Tomcat : Servlet deployment problem
posted 5 years ago
I'm using Eclipse Helios IDE
I have created a Dynamic Web application called : "first_appli". However I've noticed that the structure of the Web application is little bit weird.
In fact, the folder "classes" which is usually a subfolder of WEB-INF does not exist. Instead the "*.class" files are in folder called build in the "first_appli" directory.
I made a simple program : a form.html which calls a servlet.java servlet
I started by creating the form.html which is the welcome page :
Finally, I edited the Deployment Descriptor web.xml
The servlet.java is in the default folder within src folder in the Java_Ressources folder.
Logically, the <servlet-name> tag point to the class file and not the source file ( correct me!!) . Therefore, the fact that the servlet.class is hidden in the build folder surely will matter.
In order to overcome this problem, I tried to create a "classes" subfolder in WEB-INF and put servlet.class in it ==> KO not working
I've put the servlet.class directly in the WEB-INF ==> KO still not working
COULD YOU PLEASE HELP, It's been 2 days since I'm stuck here
