so now my directory structure is
I changed the doc base in context.xml
(I changed the name from Employee#Reports.xml to Reports.xml)
Still not loading the filter.
One thing also I noticed, in tomcat5 catalina.jar, there is a class named StandardHostDeployer, but its missing in tomcat7 catalina.jar. Also couple of other classes are missing in tomcat 7 catalina.jar(Eg:- HttpRequest, HttpResponse). Is there any way we can get these in tomcat 7
