Subject load-on-startup in web.xml (was RE: JSP imports and CLASSPATH iss ues)
Date Wed, 13 Feb 2002 16:47:29 GMT
Thanks Greg, worked like a charm!

Now for the next question regarding load-on-startup in my web.xml.

Other than having an "public void init" method in my servlet, and a
servlet definition on the web.xml with load-on-startup, is there
anything else that needs to be done?

The application is deploying fine, but is not running the init function
(I am doing a System.out.println("Servlet Started") to test).

Any thoughts would be appreciated,
