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

/**
 * Servlet implementation class TestServlet
 */
public class TestServlet extends HttpServlet {
    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
       
    /**
     * @see HttpServlet#HttpServlet()
     */
    public TestServlet() {
        super();
        // TODO Auto-generated constructor stub
    }

    /**
     * @see HttpServlet#doGet(HttpServletRequest request, 
     * HttpServletResponse response)
     */
    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, 
            HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, 
            IOException {
        request.setAttribute("message", "Hello from servlet");
        request.getRequestDispatcher("/servletWelcome.jsp").
            forward(request, response);
    }

    /**
     * @see HttpServlet#doPost(HttpServletRequest request, 
     * HttpServletResponse response)
     */
    protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request,
            HttpServletResponse response) 
                    throws ServletException, IOException {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    }

}

 

  • Create index.jsp inside WebContent folder:
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
    pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
</head>
<body>
<form action="TestServlet">
<h1>Hello world!!!</h1>
<input type="submit" value="Submit Request to servlet">

<c:if test="${not empty message}">
<h1>${message}</h1>
</c:if>
</form>
</body>
</html>

 

  • Create servletWelcome.jsp inside WebContent folder:
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
    pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>
<%@ taglib prefix="c" uri="http://java.sun.com/jsp/jstl/core" %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>Insert title here</title>
</head>
<body>
<c:if test="${not empty message}">
<h1>${message}</h1>
</c:if>
</body>
</html>

 

  • Copy paste below code on web.xml file. (Please note if you create servlet class in eclipse using create servlet window then you don’t need to copy this file because eclipse will automatically create servlet mapping in web.xml)
