Thank you so much for your response. Here is what I have done
I added the in C:\Tomcat\conf



Now this is far as I can go. I am a beginner and I really dont know much.
The system is due but this part is the only thing holding me back.

If you may please help me with the code that I should add that will allow
the connection pooling. If you could help I would be the happiest person ever.

I am not good with java so if I can work with JSP its best.
Could someone please please help me with my connection pooling? I have been trying for a while now with no success.
Below is my jsp file that I use for my database connection.
I need someone to help me with the codes that will make this file implement connection pooling.

Your help shall be very much appreciated.

I have edited web.xml and server.xml

Thank you Swastik Dey for helping me come this far.

The system I am working on is an already operational system and is saved in :-


This is why I am requesting that we use that.

So right now I have

web.xml in C:\Tomcat5027\webapps\ROOT\publications\WEB-INF\
HelloWorld.class in C:\Tomcat5027\webapps\ROOT\publications\WEB-INF\classes\test

Yes I did what you suggested and I have now deleted web.xml in C:\Tomcat5027\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF
so I'm left with web.xml in C:\Tomcat5027\conf
but my HelloWorld.class & is in C:\Tomcat5027\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes\test

Then I changed this

to that

And now my website is available

However, the url below

The requested resource (/publications/hello) is not available.

My website is located in C:\Tomcat5027\webapps\ROOT\publications so does this mean that I have to copy WEB-INF folder to there instead?

I already have WEB-INF in C:\Tomcat5027\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF which refuses to get deleted, error message says "Acess Denied"

The error The requested resource (/publications/) is not available. still persists

I'm trying to run my website on my computer and i'm getting the error

The requested resource (/publications/) is not available.
I tried re-starting Tomcat but it didnt correct the error.

I inserted the code

in web.xml

I have this web.xml in two locations:

Also when I correct this error, what do I type in the url space to test my servlet?
