how to run servlet from a real website
I wrote a servlet and it is working just fine on my tomcat (localhost), I registered for a website with a shared tomcat but I donot know how to run my servlets, I have the following in my website
I read the FAQ of the service provider and I found the following:
I understood most of it but what will I write in the <url-pattern> assuming my servlet is called timeTest, will it be like this ?
Servlet Set Up
To setup servlet, you need to configure servlet into the file web.xml which needs to be placed in WEB-INF directory inside your public_html folder.
www root directory or webapps:/public_html
Classes directory located WEB-INF/Classes/
There you will need to upload your Java class file.
Our default url-mapping for servlet is: /servlet/* or /servlets/*
To check servlet in your browser: www.mydomain.net/servlet/HelloWorld
Right now this is my web.xml file ( I took it from netbeans and changed the url-pattern section).
I am doing it right or I am getting wrong somewhere ?
