You are correct. I realized this yesterday while playing with this problem.
I've since removed my servlet.xml file that contains the <Context> tag
specifying the docBase and path. 

I've gotten over this hurdle and immediately gotten hung up on the next one.
=P The only file I'm using for mapping the servlet now is the web.xml file
in the ${catalina.home}/webapps/servlet/WEB-INF directory.

The new issue is "ClassDefNotFound" that occurs when I point my browser at
the servlet (see last message, because I'm not retyping that 'brief' recap

Thanks, though. I do appreciate the help.
