Hey Robert, 

I am the author of that document, and I regret to inform you that the
last section which you referenced was not tested by me.  I included at

of trying to validate it (which I am struggling to get working).  As
soon as I figure out the problem, I'll let you know, and update the page

folders by Tomcat. This requires a few steps.

You must add a Context to your Tomcat. The path should be "/" and the
docBase should point to the web site files . (eg <Context path="/"
docBase="c:\Inetpub\wwwroot" debug="0" privileged="true" /> )
You must add a line to your

and in the last 5 minutes added

(Still get a 404 message from Tomcat)

I guess I am slowly getting more specific:

I added these as suggested in the document , do I still need to set up a
virtual directory?  It seems that tomcat KNOWS that I have a jsp to
process, my worker AJP13 knows it has a job to do, but somehow they
don't where the file is that needs processing.
