There is a rule that says you should always override at least one of both doGet() and doPost() methods. It also states that if you don't override the method, you're telling the Container that this servlet does not support HTTP POST/GET requests.

What message would one get from the server if one does not override any HTTP methods in the servlet code?

Here is the list of HTTP status codes. Can you find which one you think you'd receive?
