Subject Re: Page not found error

Hi Jiujing,

The "Page Not Found" error means that the URL you are accessing does not map to a Java Class.
this case the home.htm template does not map to HomePage.class. Stating this differently,
cannot find the Java class belonging to the home.htm template.

Since you are following the quickstart guide you will notice that the "click.xml" file maps
under the Java package "". This means you have to compile
to the 
folder "WEB-INF/classes/". You should end up with the class under 

When Click starts up it will print which templates maps to which files. You should see the

[Click] [debug] /home.htm ->

kind regards
