I had the same problem ,
This is what u have to do
U will have to write a web.xml for ur servlet which includes the
path for the invoker servlet.

suppose u have got a a servlet called GreetingServlet

Application is under folder greetingwrite the web.xml under greeting/WEB-INF
ur class file(GreetingServlet.class) under greeting/WEB-INF/classesur src code(GreetingServlet.java) under greeting/WEB-INF/src

the sample web.xml is this,


now start ur tomcat and type http://localhost:8080/GreetingServlet

This should solve the problem
