I am reading Head first jsp 2nd editon and trying to follow an example for ch.3.
My development environment is:


<web-app xmlns=""

<servlet-name>Ch3 Beer</servlet-name>

<!-- Fully qualified name of the servlet class file -->

<servlet-name>Ch3 Beer</servlet-name>


my deployment environment is:
tomcat home-->webapps-->Beer-v1-->form.html
tomcat home-->webapps-->Beer-v1-->WEB-INF-->web.xml(same as the one in dev environment).

I am using tomcat 5.5.27 and java 1.6.0_02.

when I type http://localhost:8080/Beer-v1/form.html tomcat says "The requested resource () is not available."

On a related note, how do I stop and start tomcat if there aren't any shutdown.bat or startup.bat or shell scripts in tomcat home/bin?

Don't do that. Stick to one topic. If a moderator feel that the Tomcat forum is more appropriate (which isn't at all, this problem is not Tomcat specific, this problem is just the lack of your understanding of the Servlet API, you would just get the same problem in alternative application servers!), then s/he will move the topic for you. Don't take it in your hands.
