I have developed an application in Eclipse and Tomcat. This project has 'welcome.jsp' file which is outside WEB-INF folder and has been declared as index page in web.xml file :-


While running this project from eclipse using Tomcat server, the welcome.jsp page gets displayed as the default index page.
But when I making a war file and deploying on glassfish, the welcome.jsp page doest get displayed by default.
How should I fix this one.
please suggest.

I have added the Galssfish specific (i.e. container-specific) deployment file, sun-web.xml inside WEB-INF folder with the following contents:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<sun-web-app>
<context-root>/ContactManagement</context-root>
<welcome-file-list>
<welcome-file>welcome.jsp</welcome-file>
</welcome-file-list>
</sun-web-app>


Still it is not able to display the welcome.jsp file at context path call , like: http://localhost:8080/ContactManagement
It gives 404 Error.

Any input please ?

Are you able to view the file when opened directly by typing the address in address bar example :


this was the code related to glassfish specific as you said...
can you give the contents of only "web.xml"

Hi Ashish,
of course it is accessible by typing jsp name directly like:- http://serverip:port/ContactManagement/welcome.jsp .
But, then the purpose of defining <welcome-file> is not met.

Here is the code of web.xml :


please suggest.
