Okay, I have a directory in the Jigsaw/WWW hierarchy called 'cybertrax'.
In this I created a directory called 'servlet'. In 'servlet', I added my
servlet class hierarchy (e.g. UK/co/cpd/cybertrax/xxx.class).

I go into /Admin/ and add a resource to 'cybertrax', called 'servlet'
using 'w3c.jigsaw.servlet.ServletDirectory'. This seems fine.

I then add a resource called 'UK.co.cpd.cybertrax.Menu' to 'servlet'
using 'w3c.jigsaw.servlet.ServletWrapper', and amend the servlet
classname to 'UK.co.cpd.cybertrax.Menu'. The resources list of 'servlet'
now contains 'UK' (the directory) and 'UK.co.cpd.cybertrax.Menu'.  I can
now invoke my servlet by the URL
'http://server/cybertrax/servlet/UK.co.cpd.cybertrax.Menu'.

I then edit the properties for 'cybertrax/servlet' and choose to reindex
all. This removes the UK.co.cpd.cybertrax.Menu resource, but leaves the
'UK' resource (as expected). Why would re-indexing remove resources like
this?

Am I doing things as you would expect for someone trying to add servlet
support?

Please forgive the stupid questions, but I'm still trying to get a feel
for all this.

TIA,
