Default HTTP Status 404-/


I installed CentOS 6.5 and include both java devel and Tomcat packages during the installation. Trying to test that tomcat is working, I compiled the following:

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.PrintWriter;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;

public class Test extends HttpServlet{

public void doGe(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
throws IOException{
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();
out.println("<h1>Hello Servlet Get</h1>");

and moved the .class under /var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes

I save the following web.xml under /var/lib/tomcat6/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app version="2.4" xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"

<servlet-name>Servlet Name For Demo1</servlet-name>

<servlet-name>Servlet Name For Demo1</servlet-name>

I then started both httpd and tomcat6, started firefox and typed and got:

HTTP Status 404-/
type status report
message /
description The requested resource (/) is not available
Apache Tomcat/6.0.24

When I tried, I got:

HTTP Status 404-/Test
type status report
message /Test
description The requested resource (/Test) is not available
Apache Tomcat/6.0.24

I'm starting to learn servlets and would appreciate your help!
