I run the tomcat5.0.28.exe on machine ..it installed tomacat ..
I put test directory in webapps folder. whenever i tried to access the http://localhost:8080/test/form.html it gived http status 404 error.

Actually first time when i installed tomcat it used to access the file but it wasn't running servlets so i uninstall it and install it again.

can u tell me whats going wrong?

windows xp is the platform.

I put test directory in webapps folder.

Did you also create the rest of the directory structure required for Tomcat to recognize that "test" is a web application?
Look at the examples provided in the Tomcat installation - for a directory placed under webapps to be recognized as a web application, it must contain a WEB-INF directory that holds a web.xml file. Otherwise Tomcat will not serve files or servlets from the directory.

And I would like to thanks u once gain for ur book "Java Cram" for SCJP1.4
I used that book and solve the mock exams,which I find bit difficult in the begining but helped a lot. I scored 91% in SCJP.

Do u have any book published for Web component developer exam or mock exam collection?
