- the TestServlet is stored in ../Apache Software Foundation/Tomcat 7.0/webapps/Signpad/WEB-INF/classes/testclass/
- The web.xml is in the folder ../Apache Software Foundation/Tomcat 7.0/webapps/Signpad/WEB-INF and looks like

Hard-coding the context path and using an absolute URL will get you ito trouble. Use a server-relative path (starting with the context path) and programmatically obtain the context path from the request.

See the JSP FAQ for details.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
