Hello Everybody:
I am trying to run tomcat. I had a problem for about a week, I could not compile servlet. William Brogden help me out on this. Thanks Bill, I can compile Servlet now. But, It is not working at displaying. I saved my complied class file at /example/WEB_INF/classes/ location. I used http://localhost:8080/examples/servlet/HelloServlet. It pops up file downloading window and starts downloading activity.
Had anyone this problem before? please let me know what is solution?
Thanks. BK

It sounds like what you are saying is that when you visit the HelloServlet, it is attempting to output in a MIME format that isn't supported for display. Check your servlet source code for a statement that sets the content type header such as "response.setContentType("text/html")". If you don't have one, that may be your problem. Otherwise, make sure it's spelled right.

<b>Thnak you Tom.</b>
You know what I am stupid. I had 'response.setContentType("text/html")' statement, but I mistyped. response.setContentType("test/html")". Zee! I wasted more than a week wondering as instalation problem. Rock and roll, I got rolling now. Thanks again BK
