i am trying to invoke a servlet from a midlet
both residing on my computer but i get an exception
javax.microedition.io.ConnectionNotFoundException: TCP open
The connection string "http://localhost:8080/servlets-examples/servlet/HelloServlet"
works pretty well in the mozilla browser but fails in the midlet
what could be the problem and how can i solve it?

well,it seems i provided a limited information
but i think this will make more clarification
i placed the HelloServlet in the directory C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.29\webapps\servlets-examples\WEB-INF\classes
and i specified the url connection string in the midlet as http://localhost:8080/servlets-examples/servlets/HelloServlet
By the way i am using windows vista and i have even tried to turn off the firewall
but i still get an exception
javax.microedition.io.ConnectionNotFoundException: TCP open
