I just installed Tomcat 5.5.20. On clicking on the JSP Examples/Servlet Examples link i get the error msg...
'The requested resource (/jsp-examples/) is not available.'
No jsp-examples directory is found under /webapps folder .Do they ship with this version of Tomcat? Where do i find these directories? and how to set it up?
Pl help

I just now downloaded the file. It has the expected webapps\jsp-examples directory when I look at it with winzip. The file is 6,608kb in size. Running the md5sum check results in the correct MD5 sum of 3fa759795411776f6af51351ba654ea8

Which version of Java is installed on your system? As I recall Tomcat 5.5 requires Java 5

When you install with the exe version, you have to option to install (or not install) the example apps.
Was that option checked?
