I'm not sure which Erik you're referring to, but if it's me, what I do 
is open up the web.xml file in a text editor like BBEdit or jEdit and 
then put the cursor somewhere between the <webapp> tag and the </webapp> 
tag, then I type "<servlet><servlet-name>", followed by the name by 
which I want to refer to the servlet, then "</servlet-name>", then on 
the next line I type "<servlet-class>", followed by the fully qualified 
class name of the servlet in question, followed by "</servlet-class>", 
then "</servlet>".  I do this for each servlet I want to register in my 
webapp.  Later in the file, after all of my "<servlet>" elements, I 
enter "<servlet-mapping><servlet-name>", then I type the name that I 
gave my servlet in the earlier section (exactly the same way), then 
"</servlet-name>", then I type "<url-pattern>", followed by the URL 
pattern to match for invoking this servlet (relative to webapp root), 
then "</url-pattern>", then "</servlet-mapping>".
