Just now i downloaded tomcat 6, and trying to configure on eclipse. Here I am using Mac book Pro.

When I am starting the server it is giving below logs on console.

Still I tried to ignore the logs after googling...

When I tried to access it through htpp://localhost:8080, it is not working.

please suggest me.

So what's the problem? All of that is normal. What do you mean by "not working"?

what I mean is when I am trying to access the tomcat console[htpp://localhost:8080], I am seeing 404 error.

Please help to solve the issue.

The logs don't show any application being deployed. Not even the ROOT application which is what is served by default at http://localhost:8080. What are the contents of TOMCAT_HOME/webapps folder?

If you are receiving a "404" error, Tomcat has most certainly started. You just don't have a proper webapp deployed.

Actually, let me qualify that. The Tomcat "404" page is sort of a bluish-green header and says "Tomcat" in the page text. If some other web server (such as Apache httpd) had grabbed Tomcat's HTTP port, that server's 404 page wouldn't say "Tomcat" on it.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
