Thanks for your reply ATLAST. Just back from my vacation, hence the delay in reply. Before going for my vacation, the only thing that I did was to catch hold of a person who in turn contacted his friend in Singapore to help me out. I am reproducing the steps provided by this gentleman (many thanks to him).
1) create a new application called myapp under tomcat.
open the server.xml file in the config directory
under the tomcat directory where you installed tomcat.
you will see sample <context> tags used for specifying
application. one of them is the examples application
which maps to the examples directory in the webapps
copy and paste the tag and specify your own values.
2) create myapp directory under webapps and create
web-inf/classes directory under it.
All your jsp, html,images will placed under myapp
directory in the root of subdirectories as you wish
Java Classes and servlet will go under web-inf/classes
This may be of help to u.
It took just 15 minutes to sincerely follow his steps but yet to open the servlet books.
Anyway, I am cramming with ASP book to get an opening in the development side. (I may also appear for the second interview next week on ASP, if my assumption is right). Extremely tiring to start another subject, yet I do have no choice. Let me try atleast.
All the very best for your SCWCD exam.
