I have Eclipse IDE with integrated Tomcat, all setup and working. For example this code works fine:

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 MyServlet
 */
@WebServlet("/MyServlet")
public class MyServlet extends HttpServlet {
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

	/**
	 * @see HttpServlet#HttpServlet()
	 */
	public MyServlet() {
		super();
		// TODO Auto-generated constructor stub
	}

	/**
	 * @see HttpServlet#doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse
	 *      response)
	 */
	@Override
	protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request,
			HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
		response.setContentType("text/html");
		PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
		out.println("<html><boby>");
		out.println("<h3>Hello readers</h3>");
		out.println("</body></html>");
	}

	/**
	 * @see HttpServlet#doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse
	 *      response)
	 */
	@Override
	protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,
			HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, IOException {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
	}
}

Open in new window


at URL http://localhost:8080/JavaTpoint/MyServlet

But with this code I can't make it work:
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.PrintWriter;

import javax.servlet.Servlet;
import javax.servlet.ServletConfig;
import javax.servlet.ServletException;
import javax.servlet.ServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.ServletResponse;

public class First implements Servlet {
	ServletConfig config = null;

	@Override
	public void init(ServletConfig config) {
		this.config = config;
		System.out.println("servlet is initialized");
	}

	@Override
	public void service(ServletRequest req, ServletResponse res)
			throws IOException, ServletException {

		res.setContentType("text/html");

		PrintWriter out = res.getWriter();
		out.print("<html><body>");
		out.print("<b>hello simple servlet</b>");
		out.print("</body></html>");

	}

	@Override
	public void destroy() {
		System.out.println("servlet is destroyed");
	}

	@Override
	public ServletConfig getServletConfig() {
		return config;
	}

	@Override
	public String getServletInfo() {
		return "copyright 2007-1010";
	}

}

Open in new window


Eclipse opens this URL
http://localhost:8080/JavaTpoint/WEB-INF/classes/First.java

Open in new window


with this info
HTTP Status 404 -
type Status report
message
description The requested resource is not available.
Apache Tomcat/7.0.54

Even if I try to enter different URL  
http://localhost:8080/JavaTpoint/First

Open in new window

it does the same.

What I am doing wrong here and why is Eclipse not opening
http://localhost:8080/JavaTpoint/First
instead of
http://localhost:8080/JavaTpoint/WEB-INF/classes/First.java

A browser doesn't have access to anything within the WEB-INF folder.
But, if you add the lines
import javax.servlet.annotation.WebServlet;  
and  
@WebServlet("/First")  
to your second Servlet, then you should be able to browse to
http://localhost:8080/JavaTpoint/First

Unfortunately, even if I add @WebServlet("/First")  so class declaration look like

@WebServlet("/First")
public class First implements Servlet {
	ServletConfig config = null;

Open in new window


on Run Eclipse opens same URL as before: http://localhost:8080/MyProject2/WEB-INF/classes/First.java

Can't you just type into your browser's address bar?
http://localhost:8080/MyProject2/First

Yes, I can, it works that way, but why
@WebServlet("/First")
does not open the right URL i.e. http://localhost:8080/MyProject2/First instead of http://localhost:8080/MyProject2/WEB-INF/classes/First.java ?

I don't know why it doesn't work the way you want it to work. I tried to change the run configuration on my Eclipse, but I was unsuccessful.  The closest I could come was to add a link on my welcome page.  
<a href="/MyProject2/First">go to First</a>  

I noticed that at the very end of the following tutorial  
http://www.codejava.net/ides/eclipse/how-to-create-deploy-and-run-java-servlet-in-eclipse   
the author  does type the URL into the address bar. Maybe that is the only way. Or maybe some expert that is listening here will show us how it is done.

Yes that is the tutorial I was working with. If no one else answers this in few days, I will request attention.
