Does your webapps directory have "webapps/axis" directory ? Did you step in the 'axis' directory and see what the contents were ? Create a new file like test.html and then invoke it. If you invoke HTML , Tomcat should manage it as it does not involve any Axis libraries, its a simple WebServer request. If that does not work. Go to "tomcat\conf" directory and in server.xml try to add theis line
<Context path="/axis" docBase="axis" debug="0"/>
The Webapp folder should be called 'axis' (lowercase) .

Thanks Pradeep for getting back on my problem. I had resolved it by placing Servlet.jar from the tomcat folder in the jdk1.5/jre I am not sure what the relation is..but it works like a charm !
