To check that the servlet runs properly, select the ServletTest servlet from the ServletTest project in the project navigator and select “Run As => Run on Server” from the context menu (Note: make sure to execute “Run on Server” on the servlet, not on the project – otherwise the URL which is opened in the browser does not refer to the servlet, but to the web content root directory):
