Welcome to JavaRanch!
In web application DD (web.xml), it's defined. Defaulty, in Netbeans, index.jsp is the welcome file. If you need to put your own file, change it.

You want to access form.html as the welcome page? Whatever, if you put your resource(here, form.html) in the WEB-INF directory, then it can't be accessed directly.

a jsp/html under WEB-INF, cannot access directly by a client. so you need to forward to this page in serverside.

1. place a file(index.jsp) under root directory. configure this page as welcome-file.

2. then forward to a file(home.jsp) , from index.jsp

Note: welcome file list can be configure in web.xml using <welcome-file-list> tag

hope this helps
