Hi all,
while i was trying to workout Chapter3 in HFSJ .. i got following error in my tomcat. none of my previous app's working now.

what i did is just complied the servlet and placed the class file in respective dir and placed the web.xml in Beer-v1/web-inf/
and restarted the tomcat.

when i tried to invoke the url http://localhost:8080/Beer-v1/form.html
i got 404. ( note: i have my html in beer-v1 folder).


i am Using Tomcat5.5, windows XP home , jdk1.5.0_06
just pasting what i got in localhost.log .
