Hi... I just recently installed Tomcat 5.5.17 on my Windows 2K machine. Let me just say that it's like a baptism by fire. I could solve a few problems. However, I'm really stuck on this one.
When connecting to http://localhost:8080/ I'm getting a page with http status 404 and the message "Servlet org.apache.jsp.index_jsp is not available"
After consulting numerous sites and friends and collegues, the problem still persists (real tough nut).
I checked the locations. I have the application at %CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\lib.
In the WEB-INF folder there is a web.xml and it seem to be ok.
Also in the ROOT\ folder there is a index.jsp.
I'm convinced that is a problem in the configuration file. But I'm not able to place my finger on it. After spending one whole day on it, Im really tired. So I thought, maybe someone could suggest some way to get the welcome page. (Two heads are greater than one).
Not a total expert here but I did notice one thing about your post that made me twitch.
"I have the application at %CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\lib"
If you have an application it should be sitting in %CATALINA_HOME%\webapps

Thank you very much for your reply. I guess if the experts find your problem too insignificant, then it's upto the "not-experts" to help each others.
I tried placing the contents in webapps/ROOT/ folder into the webapps folder but still the same error. BTW, the ROOT/ directory was shipped along with the installable and it contains the Welcome page for Tomcat.
