Hi All ,

I am deploying a new web application[ashish_test] inside tomcats webapps directory .
Foll. is the entry that i have added to my server.xml for this context
=========================================
<Context path="/ashishTest" docBase="ashish_test" debug="0"
reloadable="true" crossContext="true">
</Context>
=========================================
My tomcat server[4.1.18] is listening at port 9090.

Now when i try to hit a servlet "AshishHelloWorld" [kept in classes dir under web-inf , also tried keeping this servlet in servlets dir.] using the url

http://localhost:9090/ashishTest/servlet/AshishHelloWorld
or
http://localhost:9090/ashishTest/AshishHelloWorld
or
http://localhost:9090/ashishTest/servlet/AshishHelloWorld


I get the foll. error
======================================================
message /ashishTest/servlet/AshishHelloWorld

description The requested resource (/ashishTest/servlet/AshishHelloWorld) is not available.
=======================================================


Thanks ....


Thanks ,<br />Ashish

See the Invoker servlet FAQ for this VERY common problem - or just browse in the last week or so of posts here.
Note that your /ashishTest path MUST have a WEB-INF directory and a web.xml file. Requirements for web.xml are laid out in the Servlet API - everybody should have a copy.
