Servlets 2 - reverse servlet

Working ahead a little while my java 4b is being nitpicked. I have orion installed, and my initial web page shows up - however, I'm trying to get it to show a servlet that just prints "test". When I press "submit", it says "Page cannot be displayed" - the URL is http://localhost/servlet/com.javaranch.drive.ReverseServlet.

When I press return on the address line (still containing the above), it brings up the text "test".

Anybody got any ideas?

Hm. Well, it works when I do "doPost", but "doGet" doesn't work. Anyone have any idea why?

I don't understand why you are using doGet....
Wouldn't doPost be better?

If doPost works and doGet does not, I would suspect something in the url.
