Hi,
Do I need to create servlet definition in web.xml file. My understating is optional,
With tomcat 5 I was not able to access the sample servlet.
I have sample servlet in webapps/scwd/WEB-INF/class directory (No package name used)
I am using the following URL, its giving me the error message.
http://localhost:8080/scwd/servlet/TestingServlet

reference URL:
http://www.informit.com/isapi/product_id~%7BEFDC83A5-06F4-4823-9A80-3248B6CF0DDD%7D/element_id~%7BBB84D3D2-26A7-4F94-B468-CCB0F2389A42%7D/st~%7B94C03A97-1188-4875-8A06-17743BA224B7%7D/content/articlex.asp
Is any thing changed in new specification?
