Hi, I'm trying to run an example from the book "Head First Servlets & JSP" (O'Reilly 2nd Edition).

A simple ServletContextListener (Page 168).

At first, I got a common error: HTTP Status 404. The problem was in my deployment descriptor, web.xml --> <url-pattern>ListenTest.do</url-pattern> without the slash before ListenTest.do

I put the "/" and redeployed the application. When I type again the url "http://localhost:8080/listenerTest/ListenTest.do", my browser (Firefox) ask me for a program to open files with the extension .do

It seems that the browser doesn't recognize ListenTest.do like a servlet. The following is my web.xml:



This is the folders structure:

Tomcat 6.0\webapps\listenerTest\WEB-INF\classes\com\example

The ListenerTester.class file (the servlet) is inside example, and the deployment descriptor (web.xml) in WEB-INF.

Tomcat Manager tells me that the application is running.

Any help will be very appreciated.

Thanks a lot!!!
