Please use real words when posting to the forums. Abbreviations such as "appln" in place of "application" and "pg" in place of "page", and all the other abbreviations you used only serve to make your posts more difficult to read and less likely to generate useful responses.

Please read this for more information.

thanks,

as soon as i remove the web-inf folder

That suggests to me that you have an error in the web.xml. Have you checked the logs for startup errors?

Note that the correct name for the directory is WEB-INF - Java cares about case even if windows doesn't.
