Response to: Solution on 404 Tomcat Server side error !!

This is a great article, but I also had some trouble getting the example to work.


I followed the exact steps in the article and was getting a 404 error when submitting the login.jsp form. I changed my web.xml file to the following:


==========================================
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>


<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"
"http://java.sun.com/j2ee/dtds/web-app_2_3.dtd">


<web-app>
<servlet>
<servlet-name>mail</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>mail</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>mail</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/mail</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
</web-app>
==========================================


This is assuming you have your .jsp pages in the root of the project directory “TOMCAT_ROOT/webapps/onjava/”. With this fix there is no need to change the action for the form.


Alex, thanks for heading me in the right direction!


Good Luck!
Zach
