    Tomcat servlet not running

    Hi, I just setup tomcat and it comes up properly when i run localhost:8080 in the browser with the propr startup page for server when its started.

    But when i put a servlet's .class file in WEB-INF/classes director(case sensitive as it is) and run it in http://localhost:8080/servlet/HelloServlet it doesnt run. It gives a 404 error

    Here is my java code.. it compiles properly and it creates the .class file also.
    // A Hello, World Servlet example.
    // Written 3/2001 by Wayne Pollock, Tampa Florida USA.
    import java.io.*;
    import javax.servlet.*;
    import javax.servlet.http.*;
    public class HelloServlet extends HttpServlet
       public void doPost ( HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res )
          throws IOException, ServletException
          doGet( req, res );
       public void doGet ( HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res )
          throws IOException, ServletException
          res.setContentType( "text/html" );  // Can also use "text/plain" or others.
          PrintWriter out = res.getWriter();
          // Get the requestor's IP address (See JavaDocs to see how to get other info):
          String addr = req.getRemoteAddr();
          // Create output (the response):
          out.println( "<HTML><HEAD><TITLE>HelloServlet in myServletWAR</TITLE></HEAD>" );
          out.println( "<BODY><H1 ALIGN=\"CENTER\">" );
          out.println( "Hello " + addr + ", from HelloServlet in myServletWAR!" );
          out.println( "</H1></BODY></HTML>" );
    PS: I tested a simple jsp file to display date and time and it works. I have put the HelloServlet.class in the WEB-INF/classes directory

    Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.
