reference to a folder I can't find (apache tomcat)

Not sure If this Is the right forum to post this but I'm a bit confused about some tomcat servlet examples I Installed.

The examples are In /usr/share/tomcat7-examples/examples/servlets.

There's an index.html and other html servlet files In the servlets directory.What I don't understand Is the href that executes the servlet In Index.html points to /servlet/someservlet.

Where Is this servlet directory ? from my little knowledge , I would expect It to be inside the servlets directory but It's not.

Any help would be appreciated.

A tutorial on deploying servlets

By default, a servlet application is located at the path <Tomcat-installation-directory>/webapps/ROOT and the class file would reside in <Tomcat-installation-directory>/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes.

If you have a fully qualified class name of com.myorg.MyServlet, then this servlet class must be located in WEB-INF/classes/com/myorg/MyServlet.class.

Thanks! I found the class files In the /usr/share/tomcat7-examples/examples/WEB-INF directory.
I still don't get how servlet/someservlet maps to the WEB-INF classes directory.What Is servlet , a symlink ? Is there any way I can see what servlet Is ?
