i found out that there is different approach to be followed regarding Tomcat 4 and Tomcat 5 in many regards and had problem in below

1) The startup and shutdown of server in version 4 is simpler and carried out by two bat file but, i dont find any files in version 5, how to start and shut down the server in version 5

2) Mapping our own project to tomcat server is different. In version 4 i used to edit the server.xml and map my development folder to the server with some alias name but i found it diffucult in version 5. May i know where one should edit to map our project (in local drive) to Tomcat 5.
I agree. Here's the link:
