hi i'm trying to set up a search using the following servlet Search Servlet though i'm having problems but maybe i'm just confusing myself. i have a standalone tomcat 4.0.4 server running on sunsolaris 2.6 OS. The context path in the tomcat conf/server.xml file is set to /../../library, which of course contains the directories WEB-INF/ AND WEB-INF/lib WEB-INF/classes. I have set the library/WEB-INF/web.xml file as described in steps 2 and 3, put the config.txt file in the library/WEB-INF directory and the searchPackage.jar file in the library/WEB-INF/lib directory. My config.txt file is root - unix path from root to config.txt, ie /f/http/supportserv/lis/webapps/library/WEB-INF/config.txt web - tomcat server root http://hera/company.co.uk:8081 I have also put the html form code on the web page like the following <html> <form action="http://hera/company.co.uk:8081?f/http/supportserv/lis/webapps/library/WEB-INF/config.txt"> <input type="Text" name="search"> <input type="Submit" value="Search"> </form> </html> When i put the the form code onthe jsp page it is ok, but when i make teh changes to the web.xml file and add the servlet mapping and add the searchPackage.jar to the library/WEB-INF/lib directory then i get the following 404 - library/home.jsp not found. (ie its not finding the context path - i've checked on the borwser and its pointing to the correct file, so why is it not finding it ? Can you see where i'm going wrong ? Any help appreciated. Cheers Chris
