I was able to get a simple servlet to work.  For others who may have
similar problems here is what I did:

- Wrote a servlet called SimpleServlet.
- Put it in the .../www/servlets directory ("servlets" not "servlet")
- Accessed it by "http://serverName/servlets/SimpleServlet"

Earlier I had the servlet in a subdirectory of servlets.  Apparently
 "http://serverName/servlets/dirA/dirB/SimpleServlet" does not work.

You mean an applet I guess, well we forgot to put class extension
in the default indexer, so applet class files are not reachable by
That's a mistake.
But, you can add it by yourself, please read [1]. You just have to
create a resource called "class" in the default indexer, a FileResource
associated to an HTTPFrame with a content type equals to

This will be added in the next Jigsaw release.

For servlets, it's simple, you just have to put the servlet class file
in the
directory WWW/servlet. [2]
