HTTP Status 405 - HTTP method POST is not supported by this URL java servlet

I am having trouble getting the page to work. I have my form method to post and my servlet implements

doPost()
. However, it keeps showing me that I am not supporting the POST method.

I am just trying to do a simple website and insert values into my MySQL DB.

*type Status report
message HTTP method POST is not supported by this URL
description The specified HTTP method is not allowed for the requested resource (HTTP method POST is not supported by this URL).*


the static page:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN"
"http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/xhtml-mobile10.dtd" >

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<title>XHTML Mobile Profile Document</title>
<!--
Change href="style.css" below to the file name and
relative path or URL of your external style sheet.
-->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="index.css" type="text/css"/>
<!--
<style> document-wide styles would go here </style>
-->
</head>
<body>

<h1> Register Here </h1>
<form action="regSuccess.do" method = "POST">
UserName: <input type="text" name="txtregUsername" size="15" maxlength="15">
<br/>
Password: <input type="password" name="txtregPassword" size="15"
maxlength="15"><br/>

<br/><br/>
<input type="submit" name="btnRegister" value="Register Me"/>
</form>
</body>
</html>


the servlet:

}
try {

System.out.println("conn: "+con);
}
catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println(e.getMessage());
}
}
//end init()

public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)
throws ServletException, IOException {
//response handling

response.setContentType("text/html");
PrintWriter out = response.getWriter();

//handling request
String enteredUsername = request.getParameter("txtregUsername");
String enteredPw = request.getParameter("txtregPassword");

//inserting values into database
try {

stmnt.executeUpdate("INSERT INTO regUsers VALUES('"+enteredUsername+"','"+enteredPw+"','"+enteredName+"','"+enteredEmail+"')");
} catch (SQLException ex) {
System.out.println(ex.getMessage());
}

//output html out.println("");
out.println("<?xml version = \"1.0\" encoding =\"utf-8\"?>");
out.println("<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC \"-//WAPFORUM/DTD XHTML Mobile 1.0//EN\"");

edit:removed doGet(request,response);

Answer

It's because you're calling doGet() without actually implementing doGet(). It's the default implementation of doGet() that throws the error saying the method is not supported.
