Basic Question-hfsj-scwcd

I tried running the basic form.html as per Head First SCWCD (Page 77). The step4 instructs to put web.xml under ../WEB-INF to test form.html. But with web.xml in place, Apache Tomcat(7.0.23) gives the following error

type Status report

message /Beer-v1/form.html

description The requested resource (/Beer-v1/form.html) is not available.
When I delete the file web.xml (not directory WEN-INF), it works fine. The page can be accessed.

Is it because the resource requested is .html and Apcache Tomcat's Web Server doesn't need web.xml but if it is available it fails to access the html resource?
Can somebody please explain this?

Tries do so,

<form action="${pageContext.request.contextPath}/ServetName" method="post">
<div align="center">
<div align="center">
<br /><input type="submit" value="Submit" />

The secret is in ${pageContext.request.contextPath}
I agree. Here's the link:

It's not a secret anymore!
