Problem with a couple of servlets

Hello I had made a couple of servlets today, one called doUploadVideo.java and the other one named doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo.java

What I did was I appended the old servlet, doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo.java with a reference to doUploadVideo.java

no errors inside the IDE (Eclipse Galileo)

When I compiled and distributed on test, I got this stack trace. I wanted to preserve the old code in case I needed to get it back (not using subversion or CVS right now) so I put the extension _old on one of the files. I am not sure if this caused a problem or not, can you help me?

I am reviewing this stack trace from the log:

Your doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo class cannot be compiled because it must be located in file doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo.java. I guess that "_old" is causing these issues. Just move the old source files to a different folder outside the current web application. Or better yet, use a versioning system like Subversion or CVS.

do you really think that the _old file is causing problems?

I will try in the morning, but I just wanted to double-check.

Thank you for your kind help,

It could be. The error messages says that class doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo is in an incorrectly named file. If that file is doUpdateFuneralHomeInfo_old.java that makes sense.
