I found this article very useful, and learned extra from the discussion:
- how to fix the servlet mapping problem in ../conf/web.xml that was causing me 404 initially (also in another app. I am porting from an earlier release of Tomcat).
- how to compile: I use the following command:
javac -classpath ".;C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.27\common\lib\servlet.jar" *.java
I guess I should start using Ant, tho' it seems like a lot of work....
I still have another issue with the app. I am porting from Tomcat 3, and 4.0, where I am getting Error 500. I guess the answer lies somewhere between ..conf/server.xml, ..conf/web.xml, and the web.xml file for the app. itself.
