i am a new user for Using Eclipse with Tomcat in a project. Eventhough, i have used Tomcat alone for my certification purpose, i have not used Tomcat and Eclipse together.

now i have a web appliaction , for which i have created a project, and imported my code ( with Src (all my servlets,business objects) and web folders ( where i have ( jsps,html,web.xml) ) from CVS.

now when i click run on server on my project. i am getting 404 in the webbrowser.
Since the context root of my project is "myProject" (which is also my project name)
for this url http://localhost:8080/myProject/ i am getting 404.

note :
1)i am not getting any error on console either in tomcat startup nor after invocation.
iam getting follwing message in the console." Servlet 'fulfillment' configured successfully"

2)now under Servers directry in eclipse i could see web.xml ( which is
looks like tomcat default web.xml)

3)my web.xml in the web directory under myProject directory has welcomefile entry. and there is no entry for /myProject.

Am i missing something ??

pls help
