Servlet Wizard

Lire cette page en franšais Go back

This wizard will generate a basic servlet class.

Warning: do not forget to add in your classpath the servlet.jar. In order to use this plugin you should install the Tomcat plugin (or a similar plugin).
During the generation of the class you will have to provide these information:
  • The class name of your servlet
  • Methods that should be implemented: doGet, doPost, init and destroy, doPut, doDelete, getServletInfo

  • On the second window you can select your mapping options
  • Servlet key name used in the web.xml file.
  • URL where your servlet can be found
  • Place to find/create the web.xml file


  • This is an example of a generated servlet:
    import java.io.*;
    
    import javax.servlet.*;
    import javax.servlet.http.*;
    import javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet;
    
    public class MyServlet extends HttpServlet {
    
      /**
       * Constructor for MyServlet.
       */
      public MyServlet() {
        super();
      }
    
      /**
       * The doGet method of the servlet. <br>
       *
       * This method is called when a form has its tag value method equals to get.
       * 
       * @param request the request send by the client to the server

       * @throws ServletException if an error occurred

       */
