Create Servlet with Eclipse

I am writing servlet by Eclipse, and I am using Tomcat 4.0 as my container. What I do is using the "classes" folder as the workspace and create package inside it. Is this a common way to develop servlet?

Hi,

Following points need to be noted to create a servlet

1) Irrespective of where the source folder is in the project, the output folder should be WEB-INF/classes. It means the compiles classes should be placed inside the WEB-INF/classes folder.

2) To create a Servlet, you definitely has to extend the javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet class.

public class HelloServlet extends HttpServlet
{
.....
.....
}

3)now,  servlet mapping should be in web.xml like the following

  <servlet>
    <servlet-name>HelloServlet</servlet-name>
    <servlet-class>com.your.package.HelloServlet</servlet-class>
  </servlet>
....
  <servlet-mapping>
        <servlet-name>HelloServlet</servlet-name>
        <url-pattern>/HelloServlet</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>

4) restart tomcat and look

http://localhost:8080/myapp/HelloServlet

I think the better option is to download sysdeo plug in for tomcat... ( you can extract the zip file in your eclipse\plugins folder)..
after this you can create a "tomcat project" in eclipse..

new-->project-->java-->tomcat project

it takes care of your code base & what class goes where type problems..
also you can debug your servlets if needed...
