try it with a servlet mapping in web.xml:

  <servlet>
    <servlet-name>logintest</servlet-name>
    <servlet-class>sample.Logintest</servlet-class>
  </servlet>
  <servlet-mapping>
    <servlet-name>logintest</servlet-name>
    <url-pattern>*.login</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>

restart Tomcat, and go to:

http://localhost:8080/test.login

Have you tried the URL without the /servlet/ ?

From the Tomcat 5 Release Notes:

------------------------
Enabling invoker servlet:
------------------------

Starting with Tomcat 4.1.12, the invoker servlet is no longer available by
default in all webapps. Enabling it for all webapps is possible by editing
$CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml to uncomment the "/servlet/*" servlet-mapping
definition.

Using the invoker servlet in a production environment is not recommended and
is unsupported.

This might explain it ;-)

Messing round with Axis, CSS, SOAP, RPC and stuff...  It's cool, but I come here to think about other things, and try to have a revelation about what I'm doing wrong ;-)

Hee hee
