Hi Jigeshs,

To execute the servlet, you need to use the URL as shown below.

http://<host_name>:<port_no>/<application_name>/<servlet's URL pattern defined in the web.xml file>

in your case i guess it would be (I am assuming you have installed tomcat on you local PC and using port 8080)

http://localhost:8080/ch1/Serv1

Hope this helps.

The "not available" result could be due to errors when the server attempted to create an instance of your servlet. The log files should show an error trace.

gives the same error.

and regarding The "not available" result could be due to errors when the server attempted to create an instance of your servlet. The log files should show an error trace. didnt got what you are trying to say..

which log file will provide me the error i information i.e. any naming convention given to that log file and how to resolve it.

I have checked out 1 log file starts with local which gives the following information.

So - its exactly what I said, the server could not create an instance of the servlet for the exact reason stated in the log:

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.examples.ch1servlet


Something is wrong with the directory layout, the web.xml or the location of the servlet class.

What part dont you understand?

ch1servlet.class is the class file which is stored on F:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\ch1\WEB-INF\Classes\com\examples

web.xml is strored on F:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\ch1\WEB-INF

I have used URL as http://localhost:8080/ch1/Serv1

so what else I can do other than this?

It should be classes.

Hi....

You must store your class file in classes Folder and WEB.XML File in WEB-INF Folder
then try it

Hi,

Even i get the same error when trying to execute the servlet. I use Tomcat6.0 and Jre 6. My directory structure seems correct (similar to Jigeshs's ) and i have the .class file and the web.xml file in the proper place.

Also while trying to compile my java file, i had to manually override the classpath setting to include servlet-api.jar. The entry i had made in the environment variable seems to have no effect.

Not sure where the problem might be. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Janani

Hi,

I got the problem solved. There was a problem with the xml version i was using in my web.xml. After changing that it worked fine.

But still not sure why the classpath i set in the environment variable doesnt get recognized.

Containers completely ignore the system classpath.
