When I start my webapp, I am getting the following error from tomcat -
cannot load servlet name: Timer: myCo.package.MyTimer

Another servlet( called DatabaseAccess) in the same package that has the <load-on-startup> set to 1 starts ok, so why doesn't MyTimer?
My web.xml file looks like this:
<servlet>
<servlet-name>DatabaseAccess</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>myCo.package.DatabaseAccess</servlet-class>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
<servlet>
<servlet-name>Timer</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>myCo.package.MyTimer</servlet-class>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
Thanks in advance

- please ignore this post, the reason it wasn't working was that the init() had been commented out, so the servlet was prob loading ok but not doing what it was meant to do.
