Hi,

I have created sample web application using MyEclipse6.5. There is just one welcome page is there. When I am giving the Context path I am expecting the welcome page should be displayed. The entry in the web.xml file is as follows.

<welcome-file-list>
<welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file>
</welcome-file-list>


The web.xml file is inside \WebRoot\WEB-INF\web.xml. According to this I have modified the context.xml inside Tomcat 6.0\conf as below.

<WatchedResource>/WebRoot/WEB-INF/web.xml</WatchedResource>

But still its not able to pick the web.xml and thats why showing 404 error. Any idea where else I need to change?

But when I removed the WebRoot folder and only kept the WEB-INF folder directly inside the context path then its working fine.

Is there any way to customize the directory structure of the web application and please let me know where i am going wrong.

Thanks,
Satya
