I have a very simple question.
I put all my .html files in ine JAVA Web Server2.0 /PUBLIC_HTML directory. and I put my servlet java file under /servlets dirctory. In the .html form I add
action="/servlet/dosomething"
and I register this servlet with JAVA web server.
but when I click on submit button, nothing shows up(even no error message!)
Anybody know how to solve this problem?
Thanks for any suggestion!

hi,
i think u didnot catch the exception in the post/get method in the servlet.u catch the exception and in that display the error message using "System.out.println()". now u will be shown the error message on the web server.
another thing could be, u might have used diferent method (get/post) than that u used in the HTML file.make sure that both are same, then try.
i think with these two u will get your answer. all the best

Good morning, Jenny-
Except the suggestions from kiran kumarb, I want to
mention that in UNIX, "/" represents root directory,
but for Java Web Server 2.0, the default servlets directory
should be /absolutePathofJavaWebServerInstallation/servlets
instead of "/servlets".
In order to catch the error messages, you can put
catch (Exception e){
out.println("Exception: "+e.getMessage());
}
after the try{} block or put out.println("label1,2...")
before or after the code you think it has problem. "out" is
defined by "PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();".
Hope it helps you.

Thanks for your guys' answers.
I moved my java code in JRUN now and everything is fine.
I suspected the JAVA Web Server wasn't functioning very well.
But I will try it again with your suggestion.
Wish you have wonderful days!

Jenny

Hi Jenny,
Visit the site "http://www.sun.com/software/jwebserver/index.html". You might find something of interest w.r.t. JavaWebServer.

I know Sun won't support Java Web Server anymore after May.
It sounds we have to move to some other server container.
I still think the trial version is not worth try.
It gave me a lot trouble to figure out the container's problem.
Thanks for all guys here when I need help.
