Why the servlet doesn't work?

All, I am the newbie into the Java web development, I am trying to implement a Servlet in my test. But I found the Servlet I created doesn't work . I didn't know whether I had missed anything. Please help me to review it .thanks.

What I had done so far is:

  1. Created a Dynamic Web Project named SecondWeb with the option Generate web.xml DD.
  2. Added a Servlet named HelloServlet under the package com.example.servlets. I config the URL Mapping with the values /HelloServlet and /*. Hope it will work for all the url pattern under the root.

Here is the code for it .

package com.example.servlets;

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

 * Servlet implementation class for Servlet: HelloServlet
 public class HelloServlet extends javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet 
     implements javax.servlet.Servlet {

    /* (non-Java-doc)
     * @see javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet#HttpServlet()
    public HelloServlet() {

    /* (non-Java-doc)
     * @see javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet#doGet(HttpServletRequest request, 
         HttpServletResponse response)
    protected void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) 
        throws ServletException, IOException {
        response.getWriter().write("Hello, world!");

    /* (non-Java-doc)
     * @see javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet#doPost(HttpServletRequest request, 
         HttpServletResponse response)
    protected void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) 
        throws ServletException, IOException {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub

And the I also added a index.jsp joined the test.

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" 
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<title>My Title</title>
<% java.util.Date d = new java.util.Date(); %>
Today's date is <%= d.toString() %> and this jsp page worked!

What I expected is I hope the Hello world string can be added into the index.jsp response HTML when access the URL http://localhost:8080/SecondWeb or http://localhost:8080/SecondWeb/index.jsp. But seems the HelloServlet doesn't work. Why? Thanks.


I found the issue, I have to add the Servlet configuration in Web.xml. Like below under the root element:
