WAS 5.0 and Servlets (web.xml)

I am having a little trouble with Websphere 5.0 and a little login Servlet, basically I have created my loginservlet and jsp pages, zipped them all up into a .war file (the structure is correct) and installed it into WAS5.0 with no problem.

The problem comes when I click on the 'login' button. Now the jsp should call the login Servlet (LoginServlet) but instead I get a URL not found on this server, error.

Here is a brief description of what/where the files are kept and the web.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
< !DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN" "">

<web-app id="WebApp_1136296849094">
<servlet id="Servlet_1136296848734">
<servlet-mapping id="ServletMapping_1136296849094">

WAS 5.0 installed under:
C:\Program Files\WebSphere\AppServer

And my servlet is under:

login.jsp uses the following form:
<form name="frmLogin" action="/LoginServlet" method="POST">

The requested URL /LoginServlet was not found on this server.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, this is doing my nut!

Hi Secker,

What is the target url in the "html form", where you are doing a submit?

If your target url is /LoginServlet, then you should have an url entry in web.xml.




Make an entry for your target in the web.xml and try it.
