Subject I need help about deploying a servlet in tomcat
Date Wed, 30 Jun 2004 21:07:56 GMT
Dear friends,
 
I just installed tomcat 5 in my machine. I put it in the the folder c:\Program Files\Apache
Group\Apache\Tomcat 5.0. I tried to run the servlet examples and they are ok. However, I would
like to try my own servlet. I wrote the HelloWorld.java and put it in the folder C:\Program
Files\Apache Group\Apache\Tomcat 5.0\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes. I thought that I could
just access it by http://localhost:8081/servlet/HelloWorld. I was hoping that the Tomcat would
compile the java code automatically. However, it didn't happen and I got the status code 404,
stating that the servlet couldn't be found.
 
These are the stuff that I did
1. I set the environment variable CATALINA_HOME and CATALINA_BASE to c:\Program Files\Apache
Group\Apache\Tomcat 5.0
2. I put the description of the servlet HelloWorld to the file web.xml in the webapp folder.
 
I really appreciate if I could get some helps. Thank you very much.
 
Cheers,
 
Brian
