Subject: Re: Tomcat 6 (Unable to find servlet or load servlet jar from a client jar)


Thank you for responding to the post.  I have looked at the web.xml in
the /usr/apache-tomcat-6.0.18/conf directory.  I've tried creating my
own web.xml under the /usr/apache-tomcat-6.0.18/webapps/belknap/WEB-INF
directory which i will attach.  It would be greatly appreciated if you
have any advice on changes i should make to it in order to get it to
work, thank you.

    Unable to find servlet or load servlet jar from a client jar, can this
be done with the default conf files?  Do i have to create a web.xml file
for each webapp?
  Yes, if you want to use servlets.
web.xml provides the means to map the servlet(s) to url patterns.


    I'm using jar files created for Apache Jserv back in
1998 probably using the servlet specification 2.1 could this be part of
the problem?

Software running on server
- RHEL4u3
- Java6u7
- Tomcat6.0

Directory structure
- /usr/apache-tomcat-6.0.18 (CATALINA_HOME)
- /usr/apache-tomcat-6.0.18/webapps/belknap (webapp folder)
- /usr/apache-tomcat-6.0.18/webapps/belknap/*.gif, *.html, *.jar (client)

Unpacked beindxServlet1.jar
- /beindxservlet/beindxServlet1.class

Thank you,
