Hi all,
I need help in deploying my servlets on Linux server.I have in built Tomcat 5. I created a WEB-INF/classes structure and put my .class files in it. I am trying to run the basic HelloWorld Servlet with the url as my website's id followed by/servlet/HelloWorld but it's not working. I don't know what's going wrong.
I am absolutely new in this "LINUX DEPLOYMENT" field.

Thanks in advance

This doesn't sound like a linux specific issue.

That your url has "servlet/" in it tells me that you're probably using an older book or tutorial that relies on the invoker servlet for deploying your servlet.

The invoker has been taken out of commission in newer versions of Tomcat.
Now, you must add a servlet entry and a servlet mapping to your deployment descriptor (web.xml).

See the following page for more information on the invoker servlet.

hi all,
I wanted help in deploying JSP pages also. I posted this question in JSP's thread,but got a reply that it was a "Cross-Post" and my post was closed.So I had to include everything here...
I am trying to deploy my JSP pages on my server,my simple jsp page has only
<%
int i=4;
%>
Hello! The count is now <%= i %>

but still it's not working.In the browser I can see only "Hello!The count is now "
so I don't know what's going wrong.

My server has included JAVA,and tomcat 5.I haven't yet set any env variables.

Thanks in advance

What does a View Source reveal?

hey Bear Bibeault
Thanks for your reply. I tried it again. The view source looks like this.I know it looks bad and and is hard to read but had to paste it as it is to give an idea.

<%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" language="java" import="java.sql.*" errorPage="" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<%
int i=4;
%>
Hello! The count is now <%= i %>
</body>
</html>

Thanks a lot for taking time to reply.
