Hi dear all,
I need a help that when I am invoking a servlet class file from my HTML file instead of displaying output in my browser it is downloading my output as a file..Why it is?..

thanks

There are errors in your web.xml and in your servlet. Start here and read about the types of paths and relative links to correct your web.xml. Then put your servlet in a package. Never use the default of no package.
