Now when i try to run my own servlets on newly installed Tomcat , for eg with following settings:
In folder %Tomcat_Home%\webapps\FortKnox folloing files are there :
- index.jsp
- WEB-INF\classes\pleasework.class
- WEB-INF\web.xml

C:\jarkarta-tomcat-4.0\webapps\FortKnox\WEB_INF\classes //my servlet is here called 'pleasework.class'

//web.xml file below
my port has been changed to 80 instead of 8080
Now when i request : <http://localhost/FortKnox>
tomcat responds with 'index.jsp' correctly
But when i request : <http://localhost/FortKnox/servlet/serve>

Hmm... cross posting.

See here:

I know it's a bit of a pain everyone, but try to keep this for issues that you believe are ONLY related to Tomcat/Apache.

Hard to know when you're completely new to servlet/jsp's, I know. (ie: If I knew what my problem was, I'd fix it!)
I agree. Here's the link:
