here is the run down
i am trying to call a simple servlet (lets call it 'Love')
i compliled it and put the class file into the examples folder:
install dir/webapps/examples/WEB-INF/classes
i call it from the html like so:
http://localhost:8080/examples/servlet/Love
i registered it in the web.xml file found here:
install dir/webapps/examples/WEB-INF/
it looks like this:
=======================
<servlet>
<servlet-name>Love</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>Love</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>Love</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/Love</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
==============================

It looks like you may have been bitten by the "invoker" servlet conventions.
See this FAQ here at the ranch.
Also put your servlet class in a package, it prevents many odd errors.
If you had browsed around in the last two weeks of messages you would have seen many similar problems - with fixes.
