Check if this url http://localhost:8080/Beer-v1/ gives 404 error or displays files under Beer-v1,If it displays files then It will show form.html as well.
if it gives 404 then I guess your Beer-v1 webapp is not registered.
one of the way to register it is create a xml file called Beer-v1.xml under tomcat\webapps\Beer-v1\ with following content and restart your tomcat

Hi Vineeta Gup,
You should try to go http://localhost:8080/Bear-v1
If there is error 404, you should check whether you have provided the proper web.xml on your web application and tomcat configuration files to register your web application.
If there is no error 404, you should check whether you have pleced form.html in the right directory.
I mean here your html files is not inside WEB-INF directory.

Hope this helps...
Correct me if I am wrong
thanks
