Tomcat 5.0.16 Requested resource not available




I have the error message below whenever I'm calling my servlet:

I run "http://localhost:8080/myApp/servlet/TestingServlet2"

I get :

HTTP Status 404 - /myApp/servlet/TestingServlet2

type Status report

message /myApp/servlet/TestingServlet2

description The requested resource (/myApp/servlet/TestingServlet2) is
not available.
Apache Tomcat/5.0.16


I read the thread "RE: Tomcat4.1.29 Requested resource not available" on
this mailing list, I managed to get the same result suggested by BAO
RuiXian on the last thread. So I still don't get the solution.

My settings:


Using CATALINA_BASE:  /usr/local/opt/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME:  /usr/local/opt/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/local/opt/tomcat/temp
Using JAVA_HOME:     /usr/local/opt/j2sdk1.4.2_01/

My server.xml

<Host name="localhost" debug="4" appBase="webapps"
    unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true"
    xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false">
    <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
          directory="logs" prefix="mandala_log." suffix=".txt"
    <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.SystemOutLogger"
          directory="logs" prefix="mandala_sysout_log."
    <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.SystemErrLogger"
          directory="logs" prefix="mandala_syserr_log."

    <!-- Turn on servlet reloading -->
    <DefaultContext reloadable="true" debug="4"/>

    <!-- Tomcat Root Context -->
    <Context path="/myApp" docBase="myApp" reloadable="true"

My web.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app
  PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"


What I've done:

I have an instance of tomcat4.1.27 running on another machine (say
hostA) and this tomcat5.0.16 runs on (host B).

1. I compiled 'TestingServlet2' on hostB, brought it to hostA to the
same directory ( I have the same directory structure, *.xml files on
both hosts ) I managed to get the wanted output on host A but not on
host B.

2. I compiled 'TestingServlet2' on host B in
CATALINA_HOME/webapps/myApp/WEB-INF/classes, brought the .java file to
CATALINA_HOME/webapps/jsp-examples/WEB-INF/classes and compiled it

the I revert to the original server.xml:

<Context path="" docBase="ROOT" reloadable="true" debug="4"/>
    <Context path="/myApp" docBase="myApp" reloadable="true"

then I run http://localhost:8080/jsp-examples/servlet/TestingServlet2.

I still get the 'HTTP 404' error message. I managed to see the other
examples without any problem.

3. when I run http://localhost:8080/myApp/, I'm able to see the
directory listing there.

It seems that only catalina can't see the servlets I placed in the
WEB-INF/classes directory.

Since I've set "debug=4" in my server.xml,
should there not be some error messages in my
CATALINA_HOME/logs/log_localhost*? I don't get any message other than
"INFO:*" lines in it.

Is there a way to have a similar utility to log errors like Apache's

Thanks for the suggestions :)
