I want to deploy some web apps i built in java.  I'm currently using zymic.com as a free host and built them in eclipse and tested them locally running tomcat.

I'm 98% sure I have the directories correct (www/WEB-INF/classes/mypackage/myfiles.class) and the web.xml file in the right place but it is still not working.  

Anyone know what do I need to load onto the host so that the applications will run?  Ie JDK, etc

Yes you will need to have Tomcat on the host. Zymic doesn't cater for that though so you will need Java hosting.  

In eclipse you shouldn't have to create the deployment directories yourself.  After you have compiled the servlet you will end up with a ".war" file, not a .jar.  

Just like .jar you can rename a .war to zip and extract it to see the contents.

Go to the root of the tomcat server and log in as administrator.  Look for the place where you deploy servlets and upload the .war file.  Your servlet will now be running.

If your tomcat server is registered in eclipse then you will be able to publish straight to tomcat during the compile of your servlet.
