I have created one application folder as

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 4.1\webapps\oneapp

and saved one html file in it like this:

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 4.1\webapps\oneapp\form1.html

and tried running tomcat like this:

http://localhost:8080/oneapp/form1.html


What I m getting is :

[[[
HTTP Status 404 - /Beer/form.html

type Status report

message /Beer/form.html

description The requested resource (/Beer/form.html) is not available.
Apache Tomcat/4.1.34

]]]

when i m saving same form1.html as index.html in ROOT directory,it is working fine on running like this :

http://localhost:8080

Can somebody tell me why it is happening.

A web application has four parts:

A public directory
A WEB-INF/web.xml file
A WEB-INF/classes directory
A WEB-INF/lib directory

The public area is the root of the application, excluding the WEB-INF directory. In your case it's located at C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 4.1\webapps\ROOT

If you place form1.html there http://localhost:8080\form1.html will serve it.

You can go ahead and create the directory
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 4.1\webapps\ROOT\beer

And place there the form.html file.

http://localhost:8080\beer\form.html will serve it.

Dan
