I have a .war file. I want to deploy it in the Tomcat server.

I copied the .war file in <Tomcat_Home>/webapps/
and started the Tomcat server

But i can not access my application through http://localhost:8080/webapps/<app_name>; or http://localhost:8080/<app_name>;

when i try to access my application with http://localhost:8080/<app_name>; it is redirected to ocalhost:8080/axis2/services/ and displays a error HTTP Status 404

Thanks in advanced

Tomcat questions are better suited on the Tomcat forum.

It sounds like the app deployed OK. However the app itself is redirecting to an internal function, which is the Apache Axis Services display page.

There's something wrong with the webapp itself, however, since this page is part of the Apache Axis jar and shouldn't be giving a 404 error.

Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
