I have a HTML page......simple one...a form with a input text field and a submit button.
<form action="Login" method="post">

when I submit the form I want my Login.jsp file to be called.

I have not done any configuration in web.xml because as far as i know the jsp file will be automatically converted to a servlet.

But when I am running the application...its giving error like..

type Status report

message /LoginJSPDemo/Login

description The requested resource is not available.


Please help.

The best way to learn how to do this is to follow a tutorial. There are
more modern frameworks by far and they're pretty challenging to learn,
but if you want to "stay in the past", I would suggest JSF for what
you're talking about (because, it's not just login, but moving on to
another page depending on success or failure of login).

To get started with just JSP, I would suggest this very detailed tutorial.

http://www.javahotchocolate.com/wtp-tutorials/wtp-tutorial.html

Then, I would head on over to http://www.vogella.de and see if there's
anything there that would help you start using light JSF.

Hope this helps.
