Hi! I am trying to develop a webapplication with jsp , tomcat. I can access my jsp files , html files using the localhost:8080/myproject/test.jsp and so on. I can access a bean from my project but I can't access my servlet. What am I doing wrong? I compiled the servlet in the d:\tomcat4.0\webapps\myproject\web-inf\classes\ dir. When I try to access it I use localhost:8080/myproject/servlet/Hello I can't get it to work. Does somebody know what I'm doing wrong // Mathias Nilsson

I got it now. I had to stop tomcat, delete all files in the work cataloge and then try again an it worked. // Mathias
Hi Mathias, glad you got your problem solved. On a good day all the problems seem solvable - got another little one for you, and it's real easy to fix (this must be a good day already) Your display name doesn't quite fit the famous JavaRanch naming policy. Could you please take a minute to change your display name to show 2 names, preferably your real name. (It's all about maintaining our professional image - don't let the one-eyed moose fool you!). Welcome to JavaRanch and hope you'll be visiting often, Pauline
Two things: 1. Using the ../servlet/myServlet url approach to fire the "invoker" servlet will cause you nothing but trouble as seen in MANY MANY postings here recently. Much better to correctly map your servlet directly to a URL in web.xml. 2. Tomcat has a lovely management servlet that will allow you to restart and otherwise control an application without stopping and starting Tomcat. Bill
