Over here, you mapped the   /servlet/TestAction to /TestAction,
so it is availble at both /servlet/TestAction and /TestAction URL

so you should access it using /framework/action

You mapped the URL but you are not trying to use the power of mapped URLs.
I don't think youi need to map any url if you want to access them using
/servlet/ClassName

something its good to map a servlet name to a class name when say class name
is   com.pritpal.dhaliwal.mother.s.lastname.RealClassName
to RealClassName
so you would do it like this:

 <servlet>
             <servlet-name>RealClassName</servlet-name>
             <servlet-class>
com.pritpal.dhaliwal.mother.s.lastname.RealClassName </servlet-class>
 </servlet>

Above you had:
> <servlet>
>             <servlet-name>TestAction</servlet-name>
>             <servlet-class>ActionServlet</servlet-class>
> </servlet>

which ofcourse works, but again, you are not using power of mapping class
name to servlet names.
( its not same as mapping servlet names to URLs, just to make sure)
