  Asked By: Emily    Date: Sep 22    Category: Java    Views: 402

Have a simple servlet question. I got an error message when testing
Hello servlet. I am attaching the code it is from a text book. I am
using IIS and compliled the java code to generate class files using
sunOne studio. The HTML file is not connecting to the servlet. Could
you please let me know.
<FORM METHOD=GET ACTION="/servlet/Hello">
If you don't mind me asking, what is your name?
import java.io.*;
import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;

public class Hello extends HttpServlet {

public void doGet(HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)
throws ServletException, IOException {

PrintWriter out = res.getWriter();

String name = req.getParameter("name");
out.println("<HEAD><TITLE>Hello, " + name + "</TITLE></HEAD>");
out.println("Hello, " + name);

public String getServletInfo() {
return "A servlet that knows the name of the person to whom
it's" +
"saying hello";

To connect to a servlet, you need a servlet  engine. You can download the
TomCat servlet engine from this link:


It's a servlet engine that works under many web servers including the IIS.
