Hello All,

I can run Servlets from the /WEB-INF/classes subdirectory but if I create a subdirectory and I try to run the servlets from there, it doesn't work.

I have tried compiling the servlets with package but it doesn't work either.

In summary:

Good : /WEB-INF/classes/MyServlet

Bad: /WEB-INF/classes/subdir/MyServlet

Does anybody know why the servlets don't run from subdirectories?

Any help is appreciated

Thank you

Hello Miguel,

accessing servlet resources can be solved different. One
solution is to reference by package structure. For example
you have a class file named MyServlet in package
com.test.miguel you can access this servlet from another
servlet by dispatching (/servlet/com.test.miguel.MyServlet).
Secondly, towards your actual problem you have to make
an entry in web.xml (alias) to access the subdirectory.
the web.xml-file is to be found in the WEB-INF directory.

for your example:



hope this will help
