Trying to develop my first JSP and deploy it in Tomcat. Doing the tutorial in "Heads First Servlets....."

I've got an HTML form, form.html in C:\xampp\tomcat\webapps\Beer-v1

As a deployment descriptor, I have a web.xml under C:\xampp\tomcat\webapps\Beer-v1\WEB-INF\web.xml

Yet when I stop and restart Tomcat and go to http://localhost:8080/Beer-v1/form.html


I get a "This application is not currently available" message. Why would this be?



regards,

Karen

The first place to look is the log files.

Something as simple as a web.xml that is not correct XML will prevent Tomcat from recognizing the Beer-v1 directory as having an application. Starting with plain HTML is an excellent idea, once you get that displayed you can be sure that Tomcat recognizes your application.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
