Hi,
I have written utility that can be used in various applications (utility.jar). It is servlet driven(like struts).

I also wrote a web app to ensure the utility.jar can be practically used.
The utility.jar is in the WEB-INF/lib of the web-app. The web.xml has a <servlet> and <servlet-mapping> that points to the servlet in utility.jar.

However, the web app is not able to locate the servlet in utility.jar. I have checked to ensure that the servlet mapping is ok by pointing the <servlet-mapping> towards another servlet in the web-app and it seems to locate it.

For some reason, it is not able to locate the servlet in the utility.jar. Is there something specific that I need to do when packaging my utility.jar so that the servelt class inside it can be located?

Thanks for the help.

Is your servlet class packaged?
Are you listing the fully qualified (package/class) in the servlet-class node of you web.xml?
