Remove the method:

      protected void service(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
           
      }

Thanks.
It worked.
Can you please help me understand why that method was stopping the ourput?

Thanks.

ioantonCommented:
The service() method handles standard HTTP requests by dispatching them to the handler methods for each HTTP request type. It is implemented by the base class (HttpServlet). If you want to override it (which is rarely needed), you must provide the appropriate code for dispatching requests to handler methods (e.g. doPost, doGet...). What you have actually done is an override without any line of code, so that the method does nothing (note that the service() method in the base class is not called anymore in your case).
