Hi,

I am beginner in Java, I had a problem in mapping the url with action attribute.

for example i have this web.xml

<servlet-map>
<servlet-name>example</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>pack/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-map>

then how can i call this servlet from jsp?
what to write in action?

<form action="??" method="get" >
....
</form>

this "web.xml" is not your servlet...
web.xml passes the clients request to servlet hiddenly...
so, that the client get no idea where your servlet is placed..

for clearification suppose..

<form method="post" action="foo.do">
.
.
.
</form>


in web.xml
<servlet-mapping>
<url-pattern>foo.do</url-pattern>
<servlet-name>foo file<servlet-name> //this is any name by your choice so, that your xml file knows this
</servlet mapping>

<servlet>
<servlet-name>foo file</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.example.foo<servlet-class> // this is the actual path of your servlet in com.example package
</servlet>
