Context Path not working

I'm using tomcat 5.5 and I cant get the context path to work.

I have a folder called phase1 in my tomcat/webapps directory and inside phase1 I have a file called 1.jsp.

I'm trying to make it so the user can go to 1.jsp by going to /secret/test instead of /phase/1.jsp

I have tried adding <Context path="/secret" docbase="phase1/test" reloadable="true"/>

to my server.xml file after the <Host....> part. When I try to load /secret/test it says 404. I tried making a context.xml file and putting in webapps/phase1/META-INF and that didnt work either.

Here are the contents of my web.xml file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<web-app>

<!-- General Web Application Description -->
<display-name>a</display-name>

<description>a
</description>

<servlet>
<servlet-name>support</servlet-name>
<jsp-file>/1.jsp</jsp-file>
</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>support</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/test</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>

</web-app>



Any suggestions?

Just a wild guess, but you're already mapping test to 1.jsp, so the ".../test" part of the docbase would seem to be incorrect.
