1.3.3 gives a web.xml without a servlet-mapping

Hello 'huub'.

There was a blunder, but not in section 1.3.3

The <servlet-mapping> element is not required (at least not by Tomcat), and for that matter, neither is the <servlet> element itself, when you use the "invoker" servlet, which this example does.

The blunder was not including in Appendix A, a note on how to enable this invoker servlet. (For more recent versions of Tomcat, this invoker servlet has been disabled by default).

If you add the following servlet-mapping to the web.xml on page 9,

right after the servlet-declaration (after </serlvet> that is),

then you don't have to do Tomcat-specific configuration
