I have installed Eclipse and Tomcat as a server.

However the following error cannot be resolved.

I am wondering what the error is on my servlet.

Thanks for your kindly help~~~

may be your deployment descriptor web.xml is wrong or not available in your directory structure. (for servlets in tomcat)(i don't know about elipse).

Without more details it's impossible to say. Most likely your URL does not match the mapping in the deployment descriptor, or perhaps you haven't mapped the servlet at all.

The use of the term "servlet" in the URL make me suspect the latter.

Thanks for all your replies, and I am very delighted due to your kindly help

Actually, I am a newer of Java servlet and created a simple servlet called hello.

The following is the code



I have do all procedures (installing server according to the instruction proposed both on internet and my lab notes) lots of times. However the error still occurs. Indeed, I don't know how to match the mapping and I think the eclipse can do it internally.

Therefore what should I do next step?

We need to know how the servlet is mapped to a URL in the deployment descriptor (web.xml).

There is one at my server and I have not created web file.

And the followings are some parts in the file (Other servlets and mappings are uncommented)

<servlet>
<servlet-name>default</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>org.apache.catalina.servlets.DefaultServlet</servlet-class>
- <init-param>
<param-name>debug</param-name>
<param-value>0</param-value>
</init-param>
- <init-param>
<param-name>listings</param-name>
<param-value>false</param-value>
</init-param>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>

<servlet>
<servlet-name>jsp</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServlet</servlet-class>
- <init-param>
<param-name>fork</param-name>
<param-value>false</param-value>
</init-param>
- <init-param>
<param-name>xpoweredBy</param-name>
<param-value>false</param-value>
</init-param>
<load-on-startup>3</load-on-startup>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>default</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
- <!-- The mappings for the JSP servlet
-->
- <servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>jsp</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>*.jsp</url-pattern>
<url-pattern>*.jspx</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

If your web app has no web.xml, you cannot call any servlets.

I think at this point you need to find a good tutorial on how to set up a web application.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
