Subject RE: Internal Server Error with METHOD:POST
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2002 19:46:37 GMT
there are few possibilities ... 

1. that you need to restart tomcat to get the servlet loaded. 
2. case sensitivity, is the taskserv in correct case ? 
3. is, that you're servlet is not compiled. (you only have .java under

sounds like one of those, but it could always be something else.

hope it helps
