hi all
I have installed tomcat4.0.1 on winp8
i am trying to set up my own context to run own web application
similar to the default "examples" web application
I have included the following lines under <host> entry of conf/server.xml file
<Context path="/myhost" docBase="myhost" debug="0"
and created new directory structure in tomcat as
myhost dir contains following dir
Web-inf contains classes dir

when i access files by tyoing in browser address bar as
i am not getting the document loaded
Can anyone please provide info on how to set up new context for
running own web application in tomcat4.0.1

Have you tried fully qualifying the path in your docBase attribute?

ie: docBase="c:\tomcat401\webapps\myhost"
