I want to change my application url...from http://localhost:8080/keerth/School to http://localhost:8080/ keerth is my application folder name comes under webapps directory.School is the servlet.I have remove the servlet-mapping <servlet-url> tag in web.xml and havent changed (action=/keerth/School/) in jsp to get the http://localhost:8080/keerth url still getting the welcome page but could not login into the sysytem.I though because of deleteing the servlet mapping tag in web.xml using tomcat 7.0 in windows xp.So i tired to cahnge the context path ,doc but could not find in server.xml file. I did copying the my application content to ROOT folder but it doesnt work.Please tell me how to change my application there any possible way to convert into .. If so kindly let me know how to convert it.

Thanks in advance!!

It is possible. You just need to create a front Controller servlet ,redirect every request to your front Controller and you are done. Now the servlet you want to call will be passed as a parameter for any form submitted. Then you can just include that servlet using the include method and you are done.
I agree. Here's the link:
