Hi All,

I created sample servlet and placed at WEB-INF\classes. And I created the web.xml kept under web-inf folder and created a war file using the following commonad.
jar cvf sam.war -C build .
Which intern created the mani-fest file.

And deploy this war on tomcat server. Now I am not able to access this servlet. Then I went to manager to manage application. It show me that this application started (status). But all other sample applications running on this server is working fine.

Did I missed anything while packing the war file.
I am using Tomcat 5.5.

Thanks in advance.

Now I am not able to access this servlet.

What does this mean? Which URL are you hitting, and what response are you getting? What does your mapping in web.xml look like?

You mean WEB-INF\classes\com\sample\SampleServlet.class, right?'

Did the war file get unpacked?
If so, is there a WEB-INF directory in the root of the application?

You said you deployed it. How did you do it, the manager app, by dropping it in the webapps directory?

Thanks all,

I figured out the problem. I made a mistake initially while specifying the url-patteren. After fixing it, my ant script is not picking up right version which caused this problem.

Now I need to fix the ant program.

Thanks again
