I downloaded apache-tomcat-4.1.34 and unzipped the file into
C:\tomcat\ so this is the directory structure i have

i want to create myapplication.xml.

the documents tell me to go under C:\tomcat\apache-tomcat-4.1.34\conf\catalina\localhost
and create myapp.xml file.

but there is no catalina folder under C:\tomcat\apache-tomcat-4.1.34\conf
so i created catalina\localhost and put myapp.xml file there.

when i try to hit http://localhost:8080/myapp, I get a file not found 404 error.
can anyone please point out what i did wrong.
