Hi,
I started studying for SCWCD

I brought the 2nd edition of Head First Servlets and JSP.

Alas..I typed the first program in page 30 sample servlet program called "Ch1Servlet"

I followed each step according to the book but it does not run as book says.

I have to create a new folder inside Tomcat 5.0 folder and save my work.
But if i put my program in servlet example folder which is insatalled with Tomcat and if i change that web.xml ,my program runs.


Have any of you got an idea what's happenning?


Thanks & Regards,

Jones

Could you post your directory structure ? It's hard to glimpse from your message what exactly the problem is. ..

Hi,
Sorry about.

I had to create a directory structure under this C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\

called / ch1 / WEB-INF /classes

I put my class file in WEB-INF /classes
while i put web.xml file in WEB-INF

This is the servlet java


My web.xml is






i type http:/localhost:8080/ch1/Ser1 in broweser ,which gives me errors


when i put my class file in

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\servlets-examples\WEB-INF\classes and edit web.xml in


C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\servlets-examples\WEB-INF

and run http://localhost:8080/servlets-examples/servlet/Ser1 ,this is fine.

You cannot put class files in the default package under classes. That might be the problem ./..

I think in this case you can directly put it under Classes folder.
I guess that's the way I had done it earlier.


Try
Change the encoding to ISO-8859-1 and see if it works.

I tried it. Its working fine . I had to struggle through it ,to make the work exactly the way told in the book. Please check your environmant variables set correctly . It might create some problem.

Please do exactly as written . It works fine.
