folder structure for my web-app is
teams/
JSP
Resources
WEB-INf
WEB-INf/classes/com/test/WatermarkImageServlet.class



I am calling the servlet from a jsp page using
<%
String destination ="/teams/WatermarkImageServlet";
response.sendRedirect(response.encodeRedirectURL(destination));
%>



This is my web.xml configuration
<servlet>
<servlet-name>WatermarkImageServlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>com.test.WatermarkImageServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>WatermarkImageServlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/WatermarkImageServlet</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>


I dont understand why I am getting this
HTTP Status 404 error - Servlet WatermarkImageServlet is not available

Try replacing /teams in destination with /com/test

An easier test would be to try to access your servlet directly from the browser. The URL should be something like this:

http://yourserver:port/teams/WatermarkImageServlet

And by the way that folder shouldn't be called "WEB-INf", it should be called "WEB-INF" as per the specifications. Even if you're using a file system which isn't case-sensitive, it's always a good idea to follow the spec.

Have you worked through the suggestions in the ServletsFaq?
