I wrote my first html and servlet and deployed it on tomcat 5.5. The html works okay when i call it from the browser. The servlet too works okay when i call its doget() method by invoking it from the browser. EG:. http://localhost:8080/VBeer/BeerSelect However, when i try to invoke the servlet from an html form I get a message box - (file download security warning) - Do you want to save this file, with a funny number suffixed to the my servlet name.
Not sure what is happening. Here is my HTML code snippet. <body> <h1 align =3D "center">Beer selecton Page </h1> <form method=3D"POST" action=3D"BeerSelect"> <p>Select Beer Characteristics</p> Thanks !
