Thanks everyone. Mark this as resolved.

Removed all tomcat(s). Reinstalled tomcat 7. Checked all paths. Recreated all files from scratch in notepad (no copy paste). Working now.

[Although Servlet are more powerful - I prefer Microsoft ASP, you end up spending more time in developing solution than learning / troubleshooting :s ]

As I mentioned in my original post (see the link for details of code + error) - My problem is EXACTLY the same.

but my solution is not.

@Binu - I will try that and report back on Monday.

I am new to JSP/Servlet scene but I have been in I.T field for good couple of years.
For the end of me - I cannot run HELLO WORLD servlet on Tomcat 7

I been suspecting that its illconfigured web.xml file - hence I have tried many HELLO WORLD servlet and they don't work either

Although builtin example works.

For code + exact error details - lets just say this one is exactly describing my issue but it is not working:

I can compile it successfully and I can open it through tomcat.

I have tried importing WAR files - doesn't work
Created new files - doesn't work
Copied other people's project - doesn't work

Any help is appreciated.

Note - this is local development environment. A lot of time it is not connected to internet either. Security is not a concern.
