Create a new web project
Make Sure the project is deployed on the server by going to tomcat and seeing the web
applications deployed on it. If you webapp is not on tomcat then right click on the pro

Now that you’ve set up netBeans let’s write our servlet and deploy it to Tomcat
In order to do this you have to write a servlet.
If you do not know about servlets you can
read my tutorial on servlets (I’ll write one if needed). netBeans organizes its Java Classes
under Source Packages.
In order to keep your classes well organized create different folders for a group of related
lasses. For instance, for all your servlets create a package named
servlets or for all your
login functionality create a package named login and so forth ...
Under this package create a new servlet
If you create the servlet this way, netBe
