JSP in a folder

I've kept all the jsps' in a folder called jsp in my Dynamic project in Eclipse.

But if I write

It throws HTTP status 404 /app1/ (app1 - my project name)
& the browser shows http://localhost:8080/app1/

I tried writing http://localhost:8080/app1/jsp/ProductForm.jsp but no use.

If I keep them under WebContent folder but outside WEB-INF , they work fine.

Please advise.

Please make sure that your folder is in webcontent folder.

If it is not in webcontent folder and you really want to access jsps of other folder, you have to add that new folder entry in this file of Eclipse project

Well, that is the solution if I am using Eclipse.

If I am not using Eclipse what could be the solution, can anyone help me ?

I agree. Here's the link:
