Hi guys

I have deployed a web application in my tomcat server, and I see that the application is up and running as I am able to make SOAP requests to my application api endpoints and get a proper SOAP response. However, I am unable to access any pages under the application folder.

When I type this in the URL - http://<hostname>:<port>/myapplication/index.html or http://<hostname>:<port>/myapplication/mypage.jsp , I am not able to access it. It gives me a 404 error saying that - The requested resource () is not available.

I can see that the WAR file has exploded under the webapps with all the required files in it, and my application is running as well. But I also want to access the mypage.jsp under my application folder to bring up my app admin console, which I am not able to do at the moment.

Any ideas?

Is this a local server? Have you tried by IP address instead host name? And are you able to access the Tomcat root (i.e.: http://<host>:<port>/)?

Please give Directory structure of your application.

I resolved the issue guys. Basically, we have a Tomcat home instance deployed on our linux box and multiple base instances. For some reason, tomcat was not reading the web.xml from the conf folder of the home installation. I had to copy the web.xml from the {catalina.home}/conf folder to the {catalina.base}/conf folder. The web.xml has the mappings for the default servlet/jsps. Once I restarted the server after that, things worked fine.
