Hi guys I am a newbie in Java Servlets and am currently working on a simple Java servlet. Well I'll try to describe my situation better:
I have a servletrunner file, a servlet.properties file, a servlet java class and an html form to submit messages;
This is the servlet.properties file:

servlet.servlet.code=servlet.class
servlet.servlet.initArgs=\
message="Example message",\

and this is my init method in servlet.java where I think the problem is:
public void init(ServletConfig config)
throws ServletException
{
super.init(config);
initarg = config.getInitParameter("message") ;
}

when i load the client html page in firefox and i type a message for the servlet then I have a 404 error and the shell running servletrunner prints out "Servlet not found: servlet".
Any idea about what's wrong???
Thank you.

I am presuming you are using tomcat (as everyone seems to)

either your servlet.class file isn't in the correct tomcat directory
or your web.xml isn't pointing to the correct place (or possibly both)
