I am trying to deploy web application on Tomcat 6.0. I have installed tomcat on C drive in nonwhitespace directory. In browser when I am giving "http://localhost:8081/", its showing me tomcat's welcome page. In eclipse I have created server but when I am trying to browse "http://localhost:8081/" with newly created server .It is giving me HTTP status 404 error. Please help me.
Well, it's a normal behavior in WTP 2.0 as it uses a separate instance by default. Read more about it here. If you want to access ROOT context of your Tomcat installation you may add it under the modules of your server configuration in Eclipse.
