re: Tomcat thing again...!

Hi there,
I have downloaded Apache Tomcat 5.0 onto my computer at the moment. I'm currently running the J2EE 1.4 edition on my computer as well. At the moment i'm trying to get a few jsp pages working but having no luck. I've tried saving them almost everywhere (i mean everywhere!) and having no luck. I think the problem is i can't understand what Tomcat is or where i should be running it. Any clarification or help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.......

    Hi,

    I'm not 100% certain it's the same in Tomcat 5.0 (I'm still running 4.1) but you should save JSPs in the $Tomcat_home$webappsROOT directory. Example: let's say you have a login.jsp file. You place it in that directory, start Tomcat, and then go to http://localhost/login.jsp and you should see the page. Depending on what error you get, it could be a few things - you should go to http://localhost first to make sure Tomcat is starting properly. The other thing to check is the $Tomcat_home$confweb.xml file. There should be a line that says:




    This tells Tomcat where to locate JSP files based on the URL you type in. Incidentally, if you want to add other web-app locations to the webapps directory, just create the directories and add their context paths to the web.xml file. Example:



    Hope this helps.
