hi all,
im new to using Tomcat 4.0.1 on Win NT ..I followed the description which i found in some site to start development, the example jsp files and servlets are working properly ..
later, i created a simple helloworld.jsp and helloworld.html file and kept it inside webapps/Root directory of Tomcat..the html file is working, but jsp is not compiling ,im getting 404 error..
i have set the JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME variables..if it was not set properly, the example applications wld have shown error right ??
can any1 tell me wat the problem is ??

Hello, You might have done this but still, did you try restarting tomcat and run the jsp file again? B-cos, it sounds like the server did not recoganize the file and shows 404 error. Let me know.
