    Default how to run servlet from a real website

    Hi
    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

    /public_html/WEB-INF/classes


    I read the FAQ of the service provider and I found the following:
    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
    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 ?
    <url-pattern>/servlet/timeTest</url-pattern>

    Right now this is my web.xml file ( I took it from netbeans and changed the url-pattern section).

    Java Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <web-app version="2.5" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd">
        <servlet>
            <servlet-name>timeTest</servlet-name>
            <servlet-class>timeTest</servlet-class>
        </servlet>
        <servlet-mapping>
            <servlet-name>timeTest</servlet-name>
            <url-pattern>/servlet/timeTest</url-pattern>
        </servlet-mapping>
        <session-config>
            <session-timeout>
                30
            </session-timeout>
        </session-config>
        <welcome-file-list>
            <welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file>
        </welcome-file-list>
    </web-app>
    I am doing it right or I am getting wrong somewhere ?
    Any reviews, comments are highly appreciated.

    Best Regards.
    Anderson.
