I am relatively new to servlets, but I am trying to test a simple servlet with Ubuntu Karmic Koala 9.10 and Tomcat 6 and while I am able to seemingly get Tomcat working to the point where I can see the Tomcat page and run the Servlet and JSP examples when I visit http://localhost:8080
, I cannot seem to get my own servlet to work when I add the new folder to the Tomcat folder webapps. In this folder I have created my new servlet folder which includes a folder WEB-INF which contains web.xml and the folder classes which contains MyServlet.class.
Based on the example I am working from this is all I should need to get my basic servlet up and running but when I try to visit the url corresponding to my servlet I get the http 404 error "resource() not available"
Is there some sort of Tomcat configuration that I need to do to be able to use my own servlets?
