I run the tomcat5.0.28.exe on machine ..it installed tomacat .. I put test directory in webapps folder. whenever i tried to access the http://localhost:8080/test/form.html it gived http status 404 error.
Actually first time when i installed tomcat it used to access the file but it wasn't running servlets so i uninstall it and install it again.
Did you also create the rest of the directory structure required for Tomcat to recognize that "test" is a web application? Look at the examples provided in the Tomcat installation - for a directory placed under webapps to be recognized as a web application, it must contain a WEB-INF directory that holds a web.xml file. Otherwise Tomcat will not serve files or servlets from the directory. Bill
