How do I set the default page? If I want http://192.168.1.1/here to point to tomcat/webapps/here/jsp/MainPage.jsp.

Yes I am really new to this, basically the only person in my company that knew how to do this left, and now our test side of the app won't start so I've had this dropped in my lap.

Thanks in advance

The easiest way would be to drop an index.jsp file into the root of the web app that redirects to that URL.

Look up redirect and give it a try. JavaRanch is a learning site, not somewhere to get other people to write your code for you.

Start with a search on "JSP redirect"

If you have the JSTL set up for your application (and you should), it's a simple matter of using the right JSTL tag.
