Running servlets on Apache


I am not able to run servlets on Apache Tomcat server. I have installed Tomcat 5.0.28. My jdk version is 1.4.2_07. I am using eclipse as java editor. Each time i try to run the servlet, i am getting an error stating "requested resource not available".

Hi karthik_212,

1. Your servlets should have a package declaration
2. You should place the servlet class in WEB-INF\classes folder, following the package structure.
   If, you should place TestServlet.class in WEB-INF\classes\com\foo directory.
