Hello,
I write a servlet class and run it in my directory /WEB-INF/classes of "myapp", but tomcat shows The requested resource /myapp/servlet/HelloWorldServlet is not available.
After I put the servlet into another directory /WEB-INF/classes of "examples", it works.
Could anyone tell me how can I solve it ?
Thanks in advance!
Jack

Jack,
I think it because the context root is still set to the examples folder so change the context root to point to your folder in the web.xml.
Thanks

In order to run a servlet using the "/servlet/" syntax, as in:
/myapp/servlet/HelloWorldServlet
Tomcat has to have the "invoker" servlet turned on - look in the web.xml for the examples to see how it is done.
Prior to the current version, "invoker" was on by default, but now it is off by default (except in the examples) which is why it did not work in /myapp/
The whole idea with "invoker" was to make it easy for beginners to get started without getting involved with web.xml settings but I think it has caused more harm than good.
Download the full servlet API from java.sun.com to get the straight info on configuring web.xml.
