I'm attempting to get a simple servlet running on Tomcat 6. I created my html code, java code, etc in Eclipse 3.3.2. I exported the code to a TestServlet.war file and put it into the Tomcat root\webapps folder. I am able to bring up the html page (http://localhost/TestServlet/default.html) and enter some text. When I submit the form I get a 404 error in the browser:
The requested resource (/servlet/ExampServlet) is not available.

This is the HTML code in my default.html file:



This is my servlet code:



This is my web.xml:



The tomcat logs indicate the following problem/stack trace:

I've been researching this all day and I'm not getting anywhere. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be causing the problem? What I can check to try to get this working? Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Why does your action start with "/servlet"? And why doesn't it match your mapping?

Change the URL in the form action to TestServlet. The mapping is thru TestServlet not ExampServlet.

I've got it working now. I wasn't completely understanding how all the pieces fit together (obviously) but you gave me a shove in the right direction. Now to get it to actually do something worthwhile . . .

Thanks again!
