Subject " not a servlet", yes I *have* RTFM, my jre/lib/ext is empty!
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2001 13:31:22 GMT
Whilst searching the mailing list archives for the answer to the
(apparently) perennial "X is not a servlet" problem, I found the following
proposed solution:

However, I have already done this and the problem persists.  The only
accessible jars I have are the ones which come with the Tomcat 4.0 Final
binary distribution, honest.  All the others are in a jar-bucket folder well
away from tomcat and the jdk/jre and no explicit classpath is set as a
matter of course.  Strangely strange.

If anyone has had similar experiences which they would care to share I would
be grateful to hear about them.  I'll continue delving and report back if I
get to the bottom of it.
