1)Have some questions on the path to use. I'm using tomcat 5.
I have started tomcat successfully. I used the url http://localhost/index.jsp.
Able to view the page successfully. The page states that the path is in ROOT/index.jsp. I decided to delete the index.jsp in this path. But still I was able to access this page. Why is this? I looked into the server.xml and web.xml files but I still couldn't figure it out. Can anyone explain to me in detail on how to create a folder and be able to access it in the browser and also what files to modify. Are there any differences among jsps,htmls,servlets. I've been searching but I only get bits of information. And also what's the purpose of the WEB-INF folder? Each folder under webapps has this directory.
2) Is there a restart command in tomcat5? Tired of clicking shutdown and startup commands.
Thanks in advance.
