Welcome to JavaRanch.

Which URL are you using to access the servlet, and what do the servlet declaration and mapping from web.xml look like? TellTheDetails

In url i am giving localhost:8080/servletname.
My web.xml--
<!DOCTYPE web-app
PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"



my Servlet---
import org.apache.velocity.Template;
import org.apache.velocity.servlet.VelocityServlet;
import org.apache.velocity.context.Context;
import javax.servlet.http.*;

public class Hello extends VelocityServlet {

private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

public Template handleRequest( HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response,
Context context ) {

Template template = null;

try {
context.put("name", "Velocity Test");
template = Velocity.getTemplate("/hello.vm");
} catch( Exception e ) {
System.err.println("Exception caught: " + e.getMessage());

return template;
I agree. Here's the link:
