In the past I had no problems manually creating JSP/Servlets and classes using command line and notepad with no IDE using Tomcat 6.0.20. Now I am creating my first Web site with NetBeans 6.7 and want to start with just creating a JSP HelloWorld web page.

Here is what I selected in my attempt:
- File
- New Project
- Java Web
-Web Application

Project Location: C:\Program Files\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\webapps
Project Folder: C:\Program Files\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\webapps\HelloWorld

I then selected Java EE 5 for the Java EE version.

I dont want to use any frameworks so I hit the finish button.
After I hit the finish button I see the HelloWorld web application and right click on it to select Run.
It runs and then gives me the following message and eliminates the HelloWorld folder from the webapps folder:

I opened the properties and browsed to the web pages folder and still get same message.

Please advise.

Where is your netbeans installed?
On installed location search for NetBeansProjects folder. In that folder you will find HelloWorld folder.
Add necessary files in folder then build using netbeans and then you can run your web application using run of netbeans.
