This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I installed tomcat 5.5 and then separately downloaded admin application zip for 5.5. I copied conf\Catalina\localhost\admin.xml and the admin folder under the webapps. Still I am getting the error when I try to access the url thru' http://localhost:8080/admin/.
The error I see is "The requested resource (/admin/) is not available."
