All,

I have been working with tomcat 5.5. Whenever I start tomcat, I check to see if its Started up ok, by checking the http://localhost:8080/ URL. Today, I found it returning a 400 Error, while all these days it did not show up anything like this. Adding to woes is, when I try to access some webapp in this state it responds for the basic html requests from browser. For any non-html, say for a servlet request, it throws a 404.

All the path details and the ENV stuffs are pretty much correct. Please let me know if any solutions. Crazily, I even tried a system restart, in vain!

What error messages do you find in the logs?

The Logs do not reflect any error message as such. I even tried to set it up in debug mode, but no exceptions, no warnings but it seems to be dumb. I also found that a default webapp by name "ROOT" was missing for some reason.Could it be the cause?
