I am having real problems deploying my web app on Tomcat 5.5.
I have Tomcat deployed on my laptop and it works fine for me, but I am trying to upload a simple webapp onto a remote server, but everytime I use the Tomcat Manager to deploy my app, I get the message:
FAIL - Failed to deploy application at context path /Test
according to material I have found on the web, there should be something wrong with my web.xml file. For the sake of just trying to get something to run I have simplified my whole app down to the web.xml file which is as follows:
I have copied the deployment descriptor header directly from the troubleshooting guide and have checked that it's the one for Tomcat 5.5. The WEB-INF directory is properly named, as is the web.xml file. I have turned Tomcat on and off serveral times, but I still get the message. This should be easy!
Yes I did have the servlet and servlet-mapping tags in there, and correctly completed (I've got a little experience with servlets so I've done that hundreds of times before). I took them out just to see if it would work without them.
The log files aren't in the usual place, but I'll have a proper look tomorrow.
