Hi guys,
I don't know why my tomcat4.0 doesn't work well:
I can't read html files from browser.
It used to do well, but not now. Anyway, it still is fine with jsps and servlets.
Could someone tell me why?
Thanks,

Could you be more specific about your problem, error codes (webserver - Apache/IIS)
I use Tomcat 3.X and 4.X in my production environments. Hope I can help you

Hi,
I also have some strange problems with my Tomcat4.0.1. Every time I start up, I get
this error message:
ERROR reading java.io.ByteArrayInputStream@95a56
At Line 162 /web-app/servlet-mapping
I don't know where this error comes from. I checked web/xml, nothing relevant.
And I ran javaBeans examples under Tomcat several days ago with no problem, now I cannot run them well. I am wondering if the following URL is correct to run a date javaBean example:
http://localhost8080/examples/jsp/date.jsp
Or maybe just the way I put my URL is wrong?
Thanks.
Rick

This happens when you upgrade from Tomcat 3.x to Tomcat 4.x. web.xml of both versions are not compatible. Try moving Tomcat4.x/conf/web.xml to <yourcontext>WEB-INF and restart.
Further, if you have any servlets in 3.x outside a package, they may not work.

Thanks sita for your replay:
But I have never installed any previous verions of tomcat except 4.0.1. I can run servlets and ISPs smoothly, I just cannot run javaBean examples under tomcat now. Any more suggestions?
Thanks,

The problem is:
When I type in http://localhost:8080/my.html into the browser, a window "Unknown File Type" is prompted. But I can open my.html as a common file
Thanks,

Rick you might have solved it already, but it sounds like your web.xml does not have the servlet-mapping closing tag, or some other closing tag, I did that yesterday, and that was my fix.

Yes, I solved it. Thanks anyway, Mark.
Tell you the truth, this forum is not as active
as scjp forum, I miss that one already.
