Put in some debugging output, or breakpoints if you have
debugging capabilities, and step through the servlet to make
  A. Your servlet is getting called
  B. Your servlet doPost() method is getting called
  C. Your servlet doPost() method is exiting normally
  D. If something is happening in doPost() what is the code
       that is raising a exception.

If you can't figure out the problem from this.  Post more information
on what exactly is happening and your configuration(settings in
web.xml, tomcat ver, OS, webserver config[stand alone or w/ IIS/Apache,
