Thanks for pointing that out Jeff - typo on my part :)  Has he really been
trying this for a year??

These are extremely clear and detailed instructions - nice, Denise... 
Hopefully, this will help Steve emerge victorious from his year-long 
battle against Tomcat.  One thing though I wanted to point out is that the 
<servlet-name> values should match, so use the same thing ("greeting", 
"Startup", or whatever) in both places.  Then, just to clarify even 
further, the URL that should get you to your servlet would be 
http://localhost:8080/greeting/GreetingServlet.  Like Noel said, though, 
if you can't get the examples to work, then you are getting ahead of 
yourself by trying to get your own servlet to work.  First get Tomcat to 
work "out of the box", then dive into your own stuff.

Go for it, Steve!!!

Perhaps if you posted your specific problem minus the rants and nasty
remarks, people on the list would be a little more inclined to assist you.

Now I don't recall your exact situation because to be honest I have simply
deleted most of the emails you send because the have not made much sense,
and your tone for the most part annoyed me.  So this is probably a little
outdated.  You also may want verification on what I'm about to write 
because
I am a newbie too (and when seek it, let me suggest you be more polite in
asking).

The only post of yours that I actually didn't delete contained the 
following
information:

You stated that you have your servlet in a package "org.burrus".    So 
this
means the path for the GreetingServlet.class should be
C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.16\webapps\greeting\WEB-INF\classes\org\burrus\
(notice the WEB-INF is all upper case) And in your GreetingServlet.java 
you
have "package org.burrus;" (without the quote marks of course) at the
beginning of the file.

In that email, you posted your web-xml and it looked like this:

<web-app>
  <servlet>
    <!-- Servlet alias -->
    <servlet-name>greeting</servlet-name>

    <!-- Fully qualified Servlet class -->
    <servlet-class>GreetingServlet</servlet-class>
   </servlet>
  <servlet-mapping>greeting</servlet-mapping>

</web-app>

>From what I understand this is incorrect.  Since you say you are using a
package - once you check what I stated above about the package, your 
web.xml
should be:

<web-app>
   <servlet>
      <servlet-name>greeting</servlet-name>
      <servlet-class>org.burrus.GreetingServlet</servlet-class>
   </servlet>
 
  <servlet-mapping>
       <servlet-name>Startup</servlet-name>
       <url-pattern>/GreetingServlet</url-pattern>
   </servlet-mapping>
</webapp>


Like I said, you probably want verification on this, but I don't know how
you will get it if you don't learn how to ask a question. 

Good luck.

 No, I am very definitely NOT a "newbie" to manners, whoever you are!! 
"Are
you a newbie to tomcat or a newbie to manners, Steve?" I just simply 
wanted
for someone to tell me how exactly I go about editing the web.xml file so 
I
can then see/view a servlet in my browser! If that offends anyone (and I
don't see how it possibly could), then I am sorry!!
