I am a starter in Ajax and i am implementing it using Tomcat 6.0

I have 3 files

1.try.html - html file
2.Ajax.js - javascript file - servlet code

Can someone please tell me where do i store these files in tomcat 6.0 files so that i can get them running.

Thankyou in advance

It's not as easy as just putting the files in the right place. You will have to create a Java web application, package it as a WAR file and deploy the WAR file in Tomcat.

Have a look at this: The J2EE 1.4 Tutorial - Getting Started with Web Applications

Hey Jesper,
Thank you for the Reply,
i researched a lot on this it goes

ROOT directory:
1.Javascript file
2.HTML file
3.Style sheet(In ROOt/css folder)create css folder if absent
4.servlet in ROOT/WEB-INF/classes folder

had a hard time playing with it...
hope some one finds it useful

For experimenting with JSP, this is fine but, before moving any further, you should consider Jesper's advice and learn how to create your own web applications.

By putting your code into the ROOT directory, you've mixed your code with an existing (but unrelated) web application.
