Hi I installed Tomcat 5.5 in C:\Tomcat 5.5 folder on windows xp platform and tried to run a simple html file ( This is from the book �Head First Servlets and JSP page 75-77) using a browser connecting to an address �http://localhost/webapps/Beer-v1/form.html�. I got the error message �HTTP Status 404� .Could you help me to correct the same.
Since it shows staus of 404, it means tomcat hasn't found the application .. Isn't it?
Either tomcat can't find the application or it cant find the named html file with the URL supplied. I am guessing there is something wrong with the directory structure or the web.xml and Beer-v1 is not being recognized as a web application.

Thanks for the replies and support..
I got the program working..
I re installed Tomcat. This time, i selected the full installation.
I didn't understand the exact reason for this behaviour.. But the programs are working now... and I can start and stop Tomcat using " Apache tomcat properties" dialog box
