This is a weird problem I'm currently facing with eclipse + Tomcat. I installed eclipse 3.3 Europa version and Tomcat 5.5.26 and added Tomcat to Eclipse. However the combination was working fine for me till couple of days before. But Since yesterday, when ever I start Tomcat from eclipse and give "Http://localhost:8080/" in browser I'm getting error Http Status 404 is thrown by Tomcat with a description "Requested resource "/" is not available". However I start the Tomcat server independently by running startup.bat file and enter "Http://localhost:8080/ I'm able to see the home page for Tomcat.

Please advice me in this regard.As far as I remember I didn't change any settings in elicpse or tomcat.

Thanks & Regards, SK

"Handreach Net",

We don't have many rules here at the JavaRanch, but one that we do insist on is that you not use a "handle" or other obviously fictitious name. For more information, see http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
