Actually i installed TOMCAT 6.0 first, and it worked well..............
after few days i uninstalled and re installed TOMCAT........ here the problem starts
my project consist of folders which has to placed in WEB APPS ....
i copied all folders in WEB APPS ..... when i log on TOMCAT MANAGER i can't able to see the folders... only the ROOT, MANAGER, DOC and HOST MANAGER is available.
i tried all versions of TOMCAT but no use.
please tell me what to do... it's my final year project
It sounds like Tomcat has decided that your added directories are not web applications. Possible reasons might be the directory structure missing important bits or not using correct conventions for naming.
Compare the directory structure, names and files with the apps which do work.
Suggestion: Drop the habit of arbitrary UPPER CASE use for emphasis - Java and of course Tomcat really care about case of directory and file names. For example if your directory had a WEB.XML file instead of a web.xml file it would be disqualified.
I don't care how much URLs look like filename paths. They aren't. It's up to the web application to determine what comes get back when a client submits a URL The fact that most web servers will default to resolving the request by rummaging around in the app's local resources if there's no better alternative supplied does not make a web server a file server.
Java webapps have to conform to certain basic minimum requirements. One of these is that a WEB-INF/web.xml file is required to be provided (J2EE) or synthesized (JEE). It doesn't sound like you met those minimum requirements.
Also, just because Windows ignores upper/lower case in filenames doesn't mean that Java will.

i installed from apache.org Tomcat 6.20 ( 32 bit Windows installer)
OS : WINDOWS XP
JAVA VERSION: jdk 1.6_24
I am using TOMCAT to access a webpage.... nearly 7 folders are there i have to copy it in WEB APPS....
after if i log on to tomcat manager... i have to see the files which are copied in WEB APPS folder... Then if i click one (say \XQuery ) it will display the web page and i have to do some stuffs in filling details that's secondary. I need the files to be displayed this is my first step....
This is how my project works
HOW I START is GO to start -> TOMCAT 6.0 -> monitor tomcat -> Start(green play icon) -> mozilla -> local host: 8080
the stopping is Right click my tomcat icon and click STOP
