Subject Re: Problem in writing my own web application??????

Hello Suresh,

Your class would have to exist in the root of the "myownservlet"
directory in order to be loaded as an applet. This doesn't have
anything to do with Tomcat.  It has to do with Web server mapping.  If
you are pulling up the home page in the path:

Then the path that the web browser will attempt to load the Applet
class is at the root of your webapp such as:

Make sure you put your class there.  the WEB-INF/classes directory is
not the place to put Applets, only servlets.  BTW, make sure that
WEB-INF is in all caps.  Case matters.  I see you've written it as
"web-inf" a lot, so I thought I'd add that comment.
