Hi, I am newbie to java. I am reading HeadFirst (Servlet &JSP).
I create a project Beer-v1 which i am following the book chapter 3.

I create a folder named Beer-v1 under directory $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/.
Then, I create a html file named form.html, and complete the html code.

When I startup tomcat, i input http://localhost:8080/ in the address bar and
i can see the tomcat welcome page, but when i http://localhost:8080/Beer-v1/form.html,
it give me a http status 404 error.

HTTP Status 404 -

type Status report


description The requested resource () is not available.

Apache Tomcat/6.0.20

I know if the files is not available the error description should be "The requested resource (/Beer-v1/form.html) is not available."
It's weird.

I try to http://localhost:8080/eamples/index.html and i can see the tomcat example page.

I am so confused.

Help and Thanks!

I check catalina log file, and find the error.
The reason is i missed '/' in web.xml.

Now, it runs.
