I have developed a new project. The folder structure of the project is


D:\Prasad\spring_workspace\Addressbook_threePatterns>
----src
----test
----build
----lib
----war
--------WEB-INF
--------jsp
--------lib
--------web.xml
--------index.jsp
----build.xml


I am getting the following ERROR

type Status report

message /addrbook_v3/

description The requested resource (/addrbook_v3/) is not available.

What does addrbook_v3 have to do with index.jsp?

That is the name I have given in the build.xml to generate a war file with that name

What should I do to display that page, because without displaying the first page I cannot move ahead with my project.. Here below is my build.xml

The build.xml is not useful.

Rather, how about showing web.xml?

Have you verified that Tomcat is even starting the web app?

By the way, ant -p will show a list of build targets that have description attributes (the "public" tasks).

Here below is my web.xml. It is located in WEB-INF folder. I could see the tomcat hompage at http://localhost:8080
----WEB-INF
--------web.xml

Use the Tomcat Manager Application to verify that the web app has started properly.

Yeah. I was telling you because you have a "usage" target you have to maintain by hand, and there's no reason to.
