I did copying the my application content to ROOT folder but it doesnt work.Please tell me how to change my application url....is there any possible way to convert into ..http://127.0.0.1/keerth..url..?? If so kindly let me know how to convert it.
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.
