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\c
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.
