I am running a servlet LoginServlet that calls another servlet, AccountServlet. Tomcat is unable to find the called servlet: AccountServlet when I call it from within LoginServlet. AccountServlet runs properly when I run it from the address bar, but as soon as I attempt to obtain a RequestDispatcher object using AccountServlet I get the unable to find Account Servlet error. Here is the code that is giving me problems:
ServletContext ct = getServletContext();
RequestDispatcher rd = ct.getRequestDispatcher("/servlet/AccountServlet");
rd.forward( req, res );
Everything else is fine but I cant seem to get AccountServlet running. Should I specify a more specific path in my getRequestDispatcher method call?

try this :
RequestDispatcher rd = ct.getRequestDispatcher("/AccountServlet");

I have not tried calling AccountServlet from the address bar yet. None of my servlets are in packages. My directory structure is as follows:
webapps/bankingApp/web-inf/classes.
AccountServlet and LoginServlet reside in the classes directory.
The servlet is declared in my deployment descriptor is as follows:
<servlet>
<servlet-name>LoginServlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>LoginServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet>
<servlet-name>AccountServlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>AccountServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>
I have tried calling AccountServlet using
RequestDispatcher rd = ct.getRequestDispatcher("/AccountServlet");
but still no luck.
Thanks for all your responses.

In your first post, you said " AccountServlet runs properly when I run it from the address bar,", but never mind...

* WEB-INF , not web-inf (there's a big difference)

* please package your servlets

* read about servlet mappings, and USE them (please). read this entire FAQ
Also in that document, you'll read about the invoker servlet (and why it's evil).
