Hello

I cannot seem to run a simple servlet on tomcat 5.5

a. The servlet is located in C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes.
b.The servlet is called helloservlet
c. The servlet was succesfully compiled using javac. The class file that was generated is located in the directory listed in a.
d. I am using the following syntax in internet explorer to run the servlet: http://localhost/servlet/helloservlet
e. I get the following error in internet explorer: "the page cannot be found"
f. My tomcat installation does work, as I am able to view the default page (index.jsp) using internet explorer.

Why can't I execute the servlet. The servlet merrely prints the words hello.

if the servlet is located in C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes., the access url shoud be
http://localhost:<tomcat_port>/helloservlet, where  tomcat_port is obiovsly the tomcat port (8080 if you didn't chnaged configuration).

also the servlet should be added in web.xml - in your case C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\web.xml.
However you shouldn't depploy new applications in the ROOT context,  you should make anothe one - like C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\test\  and put everything in there (WEB-INF, etc)...  You can  use tomcat manager to deploy  applications also
