Help! tomcat 5.5 does'nt run my servlet.

hi
i made servlet program:
________________________________
//A.java
import javax.servlet.*;
import java.util.Enumeration;
import java.io.IOException;

public class A implements Servlet
{
 public void init(ServletConfig c) throws ServletException
 {
   System.out.println("test1");
   Enumeration parameters=c.getInitParameterNames();
   while(parameters.hasMoreElements())
   {
        System.out.println("test2");
        String p=(String)parameters.nextElement();
        System.out.println("parameter name :"+ p);
        System.out.println("parameter value :"+c.getInitParameter(p));
   }
 }

 public void destroy(){}
 public void service(ServletRequest s,ServletResponse r) throws ServletException,IOException{}
 public String getServletInfo()
 {
   return null;
 }
 public ServletConfig getServletConfig()
 {
    return null;
 }
}
----------------------------------------------------

compiled it and put it in   c:\tomcat\webapps\h\WEB-INF\classes\     folder
i made the following web.xml and its in the folder-      c:\tomcat\webapps\h\WEB-INF\
------------------------------------------------------
<web-app>
  <servlet>
    <servlet-name>A</servlet-name>
    <servlet-class>A</servlet-class>
    <init-param>
      <param-name>admin</param-name>
      <param-value>ad@max</param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
      <param-name>number</param-name>
      <param-value>233</param-value>
    </init-param>
  </servlet>
  <servlet-mapping>
    <servlet-name>A</servlet-name>
    <url-pattern>/A</url-pattern>
  </servlet-mapping>

</web-app>
--------------------------------------------------------

now when i enter - http://localhost:8080/h/A

a blank page shows up.
tomcat is running fine and i've run another servlet program before which ran properly.

test2

test2

Then it works. It means that your Servlet works. Why it does not load any page? Because you did not specify one. If you want your Servlet to open up another page (JSP), then use what objects recommend, extends HttpServlet and use either redirect or RequestDispatcher to open the JSP.

should that be HttpServlet?

yep, and 'extends'

When a page won'ty load checking the logs is always worth a go. Will often point to the reason

Ok,

Then do you get any log in your Tomcat console?

>>"        System.out.println("test2");
        String p=(String)parameters.nextElement();
        System.out.println("parameter name :"+ p);
        System.out.println("parameter value :"+c.getInitParameter(p));
