servlet/jsp invocation error

Hello:

I am learning jsp/servlets using tomcat. Please find attached along with this question a zip file containing source code for a simple MVC pattern wherein the servlet is the controller, the JSP is the view and a Plain Old Java Class as the model. Also included in the code is the actual (compiled) webapp ready to be deoplyed in tomcat. This webapp is in the folder titled "serveonce".
Sources are included in a separate directory.
The application compiles fine but when I try to run it I get an error as shown in the file err.png (included in the zip file).
All of the above code is in the zip file attached below in my second post below. The filename is code.zip/
Please let me know where I am going wrong?

 (since experts exchange wont allow me to attach a .jsp file I am including it in the code below. The jsp file goes under the "serveonce " folder.
newjsp.jsp

<%@ page import = "java.lang.String" %>

<html>
    <body>
        <h1 align="center">My First Servlet</h1>
        <%
            String myName = (String)request.getAttribute("Names");
            out.println(myName);
         %>

    </body>
</html>

hi

According to err.png you are just opening a folder with your app in FF, but not running your webapp. You should open an url instead. It would be like "http://localhost:<tomcat port>/serveonce/form.html". Tomcat port is usually 8888 or 8080

You should provide application context name and servlet name and port everything in the url like
http://localhost:8080/firstapp/myServlet(depending on the exact port number, path)

Here are interesting explanation, examples, links
