hi, i am following a head first servlets and jsp chapter 3 example, whereby i create a form.html , inside is purely html codes, and i put it in C:\tomcat\webapps\Beer-V1 . when i access http://localhost:8080/Beer-V1/form.html , i cant find the file. why is that? i have set my JAVA_HOME, CLASSPATH, and TOMCAT_HOME, tomcat_home is C:\tomcat . why is it that tomcat cant locate a simple file ? and if i understand the web.xml file should not have a relation with a HTML file , rather it is more for mapping a servlet.
