It doesn't look like your deployment descriptor has any servlet mappings. Unmapped servlets cannot be invoked.

hi,
You need to put
<servlet-mapping> tags with each of your servlet in your web.xml file. Google for a sample web.xml file. Or it would be best, if you follow any of the startup tutorials available on 'jsp-servlets'.
