I have an index.html page. I put this file in Project1Web\resource and I added the following to web.xml within <web-app> tag:
<welcome-file-list>
<welcome-file>resource/index.html</welcome-file>
</welcome-file-list>

Project1Web is my context root. How can I see index.html?
I tried going to http://localhost:7777/Project1Web
And
http://localhost:7777/Project1Web/resources.
Both didn�t work. Any suggestions? I use WebLogic server.

For most containers, I believe that index.html is on the default list of welcome files. So you might try just removing the entry from your web.xml completely and see if it works.

Otherwise, I believe that the leading "/" may be causing you problems.

I deleted the <welcome-file-list> tag and restarted the server.But unfortunately it didn't work.

This makes no sense. The welcome file list declares file names (not paths) to look for in a referenced folder. It makes no sense to have the resource/ folder defined.

If you are trying to redirect to the resource folder when the root of the web app is referenced, you can't do it with the welcome file mechanism. You'd need to put in index.html at the root that redirected into the resources/ folder.

See here.

I didn't know too much about this. I am just a beginner. It make sense after reading your reply. I got rid off "/resources" and it works.
Thank you very much
