I tried as below from web.xml file as well passing initparam value getting null even then also in output

package com.gp.java;

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.PrintWriter;

import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.annotation.WebServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

/**
 * Servlet implementation class XmlServlet
 */

public class XmlServlet extends HttpServlet {
      private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
       
    /**
     * @see HttpServlet#HttpServlet()
     */
    public XmlServlet() {
        super();
        // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub
    }

      /**
       * @see HttpServlet#doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
       */
      protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
            // TODO Auto-generated method stub
            System.out.println("hello from get of xml serv");
            PrintWriter writer=response.getWriter();
            writer.println("<h3>hello in html of xml serv</h3>");
      
                  String userNam=request.getParameter("userName");
                  writer.println("heello"+userNam);
                  String[] location=request.getParameterValues("location");
                  writer.println("u at"+location.length+"places");
                    writer.println("Hellllooo init param has default value of"+getServletConfig().getInitParameter("defaultuser"));
      }
      

      /**
       * @see HttpServlet#doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
       */
      protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
            // TODO Auto-generated method stub
            System.out.println("hello from post of xml serv");
            PrintWriter writer=response.getWriter();
            writer.println("<h3>hello in html of xml serv</h3>");
      
                  String userNam=request.getParameter("userName");
                  writer.println("heello"+userNam);
                  String[] location=request.getParameterValues("location");
                  writer.println("u at"+location.length+"places");
      }

I think that there is missing ")" right after this line:
{@WebInitParam(name="defaultUser", value="value1")}

that error is gone but when i try to run tomcat is giving error like

Server Tomcat v7.0 Server at localhost was unable to start within 45 seconds. If the server requires more time, try increasing the timeout in the server editor.

Please advise

is there any exceptions? Have you setup tomcat in the right way?
Have a look here, probably you have missed something?!
