I've seen this come up as a suggestion many time, and I must disagree. I'm using the same set
up as him, and I have many spaces in my dirs. It makes no difference. My apps all work perfectly,
spaces or no.

Just my five cents.

  Sounds like the JDK 1.4.1 not liking spaces in the directory paths.

  Try putting tomcat in D:\Tomcat4.1

  Subject: Need help on deploying application

  I have installed Tomcat on my workstation and I'm able to access the applications supplied
with the distribution. I have two Tomcat books and I'm trying to deploy an application from
one of them as a tool to learn Tomcat basics. I am unable to get to the application. Below
is what I believe to be the essential facts of my situation. I would appreciate someone looking
over this and telling me where I've gone wrong or offering suggestions on other debugging
techniques. Thanks.

  Here is the information from the Tomcat Manager page:
  Tomcat version: Apache Tomcat/4.1.24 
  JVM version:
  JVM supplier:
  Sun Microsystems Inc. 
  Windows XP 
  OS version:
  Processor architecture:

  My CATALINA_HOME environment variable points to:
  D:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1

  My application is at this path location:
  D:\Program Files\Apache Group\Tomcat 4.1\webapps\apress

  I have the files "login.jsp" and "welcome.jsp" in this directory.

  I have this web.xml file in apress\WEB-INF:
  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

  <!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC
    '-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN'





  I have this context element in my server.xml file:
  <Context path="/apress" docBase="apress" debug="0" reloadable="true" />

  When I point my browser at "http://localhost:8080/apress/login.jsp", I get this error message:
  "The requested resource (/apress/login.jsp) is not available."

  When I use the Tomcat Manager application to start the "/apress" application, I get this
error message:
  "FAIL - Application at context path /apress could not be started"

  Can anyone point out where I've gone wrong? Thanks.
