The Dirac equation is solved approximately for the Woods-Saxon potential and a tensor potential with the arbitrary spin-orbit coupling quantum number \( \kappa\) under pseudospin and spin symmetry. The energy eigenvalues and the Dirac spinors are obtained in terms of hypergeometric functions. The energy eigenvalues are calculated numerically.
