Just to add... the bewlow would work assuming that you are calling
Velocity.init(p) somewhere in your code (where p is the properties you
have loaded using loadConfiguration method

Try changing the getTemplate to

view  =   getTemplate("sample.vm");

you should be able to get it.

Hi thanks for your respsonse,
Its not liable to be a permissions error as i am running tomcat on my
pc and have installed it myself.
I should state i am a total newbie to velocity and just installed it  
I've placed  velocity-1.4.jar & velocity-dep-1.4 under  WEB-INF/lib
within my 
tomcat instance.
my web.xml contains the following:

and i am accessing the following url in my browser:
The supporting Java Code pcak1.SampleServlet is:
package pack1;

import java.util.Properties;
import java.util.Vector;
import javax.servlet.ServletConfig;
import  javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import  javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import org.apache.velocity.Template;
import  org.apache.velocity.context.Context;
import  org.apache.velocity.servlet.VelocityServlet;
import  org.apache.velocity.exception.ResourceNotFoundException;
import  org.apache.velocity.exception.ParseErrorException;
import org.apache.log4j.*;
* Sample of how to use the VelocityServlet.
* This  example shows how to add objects to the context and
* pass them to the  view.

public class SampleServlet  extends VelocityServlet
*   Called by  the VelocityServlet
*   init().  We  want to set a set of properties
*   so  that views will be found in the webapp
*    root.  This makes this easier to work with as
*   an example, so a new user doesn't have to  worry
*   about config issues when first  figuring things
*    out
static Logger logger =  Logger.getLogger("Test");
    protected Properties loadConfiguration(ServletConfig  config )
throws IOException,  FileNotFoundException
Properties p = new  Properties();
*  first, we set the  view path for the
*   FileResourceLoader to the root of  the
*  webapp.   This probably won't work  under
*  in a WAR under  WebLogic, but should
*   under tomcat :)
        String path =  config.getServletContext().getRealPath("/");
        if (path ==  null)
logger.error(" SampleServlet.loadConfiguration() : unable to  "
+ "get the current webapp root.  Using '/'. Please fix.");
            path =  "/";
        p.setProperty(  Velocity.FILE_RESOURCE_LOADER_PATH,  path );
*  and the same for  the log file
        p.setProperty( "runtime.log",  path + "velocity.log" );
        return p;

*  main routine to handle a  request.  Called by
*  VelocityServlet,  your responsibility as programmer
*  is to  simply return a valid Template
*   </p>
*   @param ctx a Velocity Context object to be filled  with
*              data.  Will be used for rendering this
*              view
*  @return Template to be used for  request
public Template  handleRequest( HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse  response, Context ctx )
*  set up some data  to put into the context
        String p1 =  "Bob";
String p2 = "Harold";
        Vector personList = new  Vector();
personList.addElement(  p1 );
personList.addElement( p2  );
*  Add the list to  the context.
*  This is  how it's passed to the view.
        ctx.put("theList", personList  );
*  get the  view.  There are three  possible
*   exceptions.  Good to know what  happened.
        Template view = null;
view  =   

catch( ParseErrorException pee  )
logger.error("SampleServlet : parse error for view " +  pee);
catch( ResourceNotFoundException  rnfe )
logger.error("SampleServlet : view not found " +  rnfe);
catch( Exception e  )
logger.error("Error " + e);
return  view;
