Do you have a WEB-INF directory? I think you'll need that.

How are you accessing the page? Did you enter the URL correctly? Should be:

http://localhost:8080/DirectoryName/form.html

Hi Anila,

Hi Anila,
I had also faced the similar problem many time. What i did was i created a copy of the existing directory under webapps and then renamed. It solved the problem for me. I guess i was having the problem because there was some mistake in my web.xml(but i could not figure out what, I hope the directory you are using is WEB-INF and not WEB_INF)

Hi all,

Honestly saying my web.xml is empty. I thought for just showing the html page it just need to have a text file named web.xml.

Can you tell what should be the content of the web.xml file?

Thanks all,
Anila

You tried it with an empty web.xml . Are you ...

Here an example how your web.xml can look:


<web-app xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_4.xsd" version="2.4">
<servlet>
<servlet-name>Anila's Servlet</servlet-name>
<servlet-class>YOURServlet</servlet-class>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>Anila's Servlet</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/Serv</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
</web-app>



Regards,
Darya

Yes, i have created a WEB_INF directory in D:\TomCat\webapps\DirectoryName
and also in D:\MyPrograms\DirectoryName\etc.



1. Is D:\TomCat\ your TomCat root directory?
2. If point 1 is correct, put form.html under d:\TomCat\webapps\DirectoryName.
3. Directory name should be WEB-INF, not WEB_INF.

Yes, i am using the link http://localhost:8080/DirName/form.html. When i use http://localhost:8080, i am getting the tomcat home page



You should use url http://localhost:8080/DirectoryName/form.html, not http://localhost:8080/DirName/form.html

You don't need web.xml to display form.html.

Hi Dongshan Cai,

Thanks a lot.Even i got confused whether you need a web.xml file to display just an html page.

My tomcat installation is in D:\Tomcat\Tomcat5.0

I have corrected the WEB_INF to WEB-INF.

My application directory name is Dolls and html is Doll.html.

I have placed this Doll.html in D:MyPrograms\Dolls\Doll.html

and also in D:Tomcat\Tomcat5.0\webapps\Dolls\Doll.html

Also D:\Tomcat\Tomcat5.0\webapps\Dolls\WEB-INF directory also

Regards,
Anila

Yes. You need a web.xml to display a simplest html page ( I tried in Tomcat5.5). Without it, you will get "resource not found error".

Bests,

Jason

I removed web.xml and restart tomcat, then open the following page without problem.

http://localhost:8080/Beer-v1/form.html

I am using Tomcat 5.5.9 with J2SE 1.5.0_03-b07 on Windows XP.

Anila,

Sorry for late reply. Have you solve the problem? Can you display the html page now?

Thanks a lot.Even i got confused whether you need a web.xml file to display just an html page.



You are welcome. I don't need web.xml file to display the html page. Please refer to my previous post.

My tomcat installation is in D:\Tomcat\Tomcat5.0

I have corrected the WEB_INF to WEB-INF.

My application directory name is Dolls and html is Doll.html.

I have placed this Doll.html in D:MyPrograms\Dolls\Doll.html

and also in D:Tomcat\Tomcat5.0\webapps\Dolls\Doll.html

Also D:\Tomcat\Tomcat5.0\webapps\Dolls\WEB-INF directory also



You can display Doll.html by using web page http://localhost:8080/Dolls/Doll.html
