HTTP Status 405 - HTTP method GET is not supported by this URL

I have gotten this error now on tomcat6 and on resin3 with this
servlet. It's just a very simple servlet, inheriting
javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet. I can finally reach the servlet, but
am getting this error about the GET method, which is odd, because my
servlet uses doPost and NOT doGet!

Any help would be oh so incredibly appreciated. I am so stumped, and
I feel like it's something small and rediculous.

This is my web.xml file in the WEB-INF directory above the classes
directory with my servlet in it.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<web-app xmlns=""


      nVoice Project

    <!-- Define servlets that are included in the application -->



And here is my servlet,

import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.http.*;

public final class processVoice extends HttpServlet {

    private static final long serialVersionUID = -7073847128899840780L;

    ServletInputStream inputStream;
    byte[] data;
    String error;

    public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse
    throws IOException, ServletException

        inputStream = request.getInputStream();;

        error = new String("Blahblah");

        try {
         FileOutputStream fileoutputstream = new
        } catch (FileNotFoundException fnfex) {
         error = fnfex.toString();

        } catch (SecurityException sex) {
         error = sex.toString();

        //ServletOutputStream out = response.getOutputStream();
        response.setHeader("error", error);


Just a stub really, trying to get any communication at all, I'm trying
to post from an applet using the org.apache.commons.httpclient
package. Thank you all!
