I hope so, considering that this is a Servlets forum.

Sometimes a more descriptive topic name is better so that we can know what your question on Servlets is really about.

Well, now I read your question, and it isn't about a Servlet in particular, but a Tomcat question. So I will move this thread to the Apache/Tomcat forum.

The regular installation of Tomcat includes documentation files that cover all questions like this. If you can see the regular Tomcat startup screen, you are in business.

You don't drop it anywhere and hope it works. You'll have to package it someway and deploy it in tomcat, by deploying, the least thing to do is to let tomcat know you've come up with some servlets and the path to get to it.
As one option, Tomcat has a manager that lets you deploy your application which I found very useful during development.

Good luck.

Hi
I suggest you put it in Tomcat5/webapps/YourApp/WEB-INF ..., The book Head First Servlet & JSP is a pretty good one for whoever wants to learn servlet and JSP, It has the whole chapter on deploying webapps, I suggest you to buy it

Cheers

Hi,

u compile the servlet file and put the Servlet1.class in /uapp/WEB-INF/classes folder

u need to modify the web.xml in the /WEB-INF folder by adding

<servlet>
<servlet-name>Servlet1</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>Servlet1</servlet-class>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>Servlet1</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/Servlet1</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

resart the tomcat server this should solve ur problem
