I've been trying to run a simple servlet for 2 days but couldn't neither in the eclipse ide nor through the command prompt by creating a war file.
Its been a year since i have touched java, and now at this stage i feel despicable.
the servlet is getting compiled as i set the classpath on the command prompt making servlet-api.jar availabe. I'am creating the WEB-INF folder inside which i placed the web.xml and classes folder. Inside the classes folder i'am placing the class file. All these inside a folder named project1. finally creating the war file using the path
jar -cvf one.war project1
I'm placing the war file in the webapps folder of tomcat5.5 which im using.
Im able to start tomcat properly on the command prompt. my project is being displayed in the apps of the tomcat mager page. once i click it it displays
Http error 404
