Did you read the ServletsFaq (⇐ click this link) on this issue? It points out a number of errors that you've made.

Did you place the compiled class file under classes according to the package name?

Note that the server must be restarted after changes to web.xml and class files.

Double-check that Tomcat is recognizing "First" as holding a web application by placing a plain index.html file there. If you can't open http://localhost:7777/First/index.html then there is probably something wrong with your directory structure.

I agree. Here's the link:
