Hi,

I have created a jsp file hello.jsp and placed it in the directory "exam" under webapps. I am using tomcat.

There is nothing else in the "exam" directory apart from the hello.jsp file. I started the tomcat and tried to access the page as

http://localhost:8080/exam/hello.jsp

It didnt work. But when I created a web-inf directory and the subdirectories like classes, lib it worked.

What is the reason? Does executing the jsps need a directory structure.
