The servlet should be in a directory configured to allow servlets, it can
be done easily.
If your servlet is /foo/bar/myServlet, edit the /foo/bar resource. Delete
its HTTPFrame, and replace it by an org.w3c.jigsaw.servlet.ServletDirectoryFrame
It is equivalent of setting the CLASSPATHfor the servlet inside this
Hope this helps,
