Servlet problems on Orion

Can anyone help me ?
I have a servlet in the WEB-INF\classes
and when I try to access the servlet
I get the following error:
HTTP 404 - File not found
Internet Explorer
This is the web.xml content:
<display-name>Proiect SICE</display-name>
<description>Proiect pentru scoala.</description>

This is the content of the servlet:
public class Register extends HttpServlet
public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response)
throws ServletException, IOException
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
out.println("<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>Server respons</TITLE></HEAD>");
out.println("<BODY><B>bla bla bla ...</B>");
Should I write anything else in the web.xml ?
Why can't orion see my servlet ?

I am unable to duplicate your problem. It works for me (after I added a doGet())

and using your XML stuff.

Hi Marilyn de Queiroz.
Your solution did not worked for me.
I tried an other approach and it worked.
In web.xml file I put a the folloing code:
and only after that it worked.
