I have problem giving the url-pattern information in web.xml file. I have a created a servet ServletExample and the url-pattern entry for this servlet looks like this:


The servlet class is directly under the classes folder. When i try to run this servlet from Tomcat with http://localhost:8080/PostServlet URL, I get the following error:

The requested resource (/ServletExample) is not available.

The URL seems is missing the name of the web app; it should be something like http://localhost:8080/MyWebApp/PostServlet. Or are you modifying the ROOT context? I wouldn't recommend that.
