So, what happens if you go to the following URL in a browser when Tomcat is running?

2 months ago

C:\Program Files\Java\apache-tomcat-9.0.14\webapps\MyServletA  

I thought you had named your war file HelloWorld.war, so it seems it isn't.... You called it MyServletA.war? This is important because it will determine your contex-root (e.g. starting URL of your web-application)

The URL servlet-mapping in the web.xml will tell the mapping
points to your MyServletA servlet.

In other words, if your war file is called MyServletA.war, then you need the following action: (notice the capital A, I didn't see that in your code)

<form method="GET" action="/MyServletA/hello">type some text: <input <br /> type="text" name="any" />

Did you change the link in your HTML file to something simular to the tutorial?

<form method="GET" action="/HelloWorld/hello">
type some text: <input type="text" name="any" />

<input type="submit">

The link in the HTML file is incorrect, you can't point to a file.

If you check the tutorial again it should be something like:


if your war file is called HelloWorld.war this URL should work from any browser.

How do I post the contents of the .war file  

Sorry, I meant the structure of your war file (like in the small tutorial)

What is the exact URL you are using again?

Please post your html file, your web.xml file, and the contents of your war file.

Try this:

  • open a cmd window from the tomcat directory (the dir where startup.bat is)
  • run startup.bat

    You don't need the CLASSPATH, you do need to update the PATH variable.

    ok, the CLASSPATH is wrong.

    Update your PATH from a cmd window like this:

    what does java -version in a cmd window give you as a result?

    You don't need JRE_HOME.

    CATALINA_HOME is tomcat's home directory.
