Deploying the servlet
After you compile the servlet class, deploy the servlet to your application. You can deploy your servlet as a class file, or packaged as a JAR file. The SampleServlet.class servlet is deployed to your application packaged in iportal.jar.
If you deploy the servlet using a JAR file, copy the JAR file to the following location:
<context root>\WEB-INF\lib
If you deploy the servlet as a class file, copy the servlet class to the following location:
<context root>\WEB-INF\classes
