Here's the error coming from a log..

2004-08-11 12:53:16 StandardHost[localhost]: MAPPING configuration error for request URI /hreports

it could be because of following ----

1.This problem is having only one reason, which is that , u have not deployed ur ear file on the app server, deploy it and then run the model. and remember , to set the parent_last value for the loader property.

2.Do you set your server.xml?? If not try to find the context manager in the file and copy the line and modify the configuration base on your own setting. let say if you want to add a new context call myTest you need to add this context in the server.xml. This only apply to tomcat 4.x....... If you are using tomcat 3.x you no need to configure you server.xml, it will automaticly add in to tomcat at runtime.

3.your web.xml should looks like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app
    PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"





and your should access your servlet at http://localhost:8080/test/HelloWorld

i hope this may help you...
best of luck...
