Tomcat?

Hmmm....
Run Tomcat in verbose mode and see if you can see an exception stack trace.


also where should i place my servlets to access them as
http://localhost:8080/servlet/myservlet
the book says in the server_root/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes
directory but there is no such classes dir. in WEB-INF

Yes create it. Compile your servlets and put them there. You will also need to create a web application deployment descriptor, and then create a servlet mapping to map your servlet to the URL you listed.
What book are you using?
 
No. No. No. No. Changed my mind. Wanna come down. To see this tiny ad:
