```Hi..Shapira and Dear All,

May I know what do you mean by

"Simply create that context path under the webapps
directory. You can also specify it in context.xml if
you want, but that's not required."

Can you explain in more detail?  Do u mean add context
entry in server.xml? or what? what is the content of
the context.xml file that you are refering to? Where
should I save the file?

"Use \\ for backslash or alternatively
file:// not just a single slash."

Result still the same, no another application added to
the list.  But I want to know why we need to add the
"hello" as the new application? What does it mean?
Without adding it as the application, the JSP still
work as normal right?

Simply create that context path under the webapps
directory. You can
also specify it in context.xml if you want, but that's
not required.

folder.

Call it hello.xml not context.xml.

>PATH = /hello
>Config URL=
file:/C:\Tomcat\Tomcat-4-1-18\webapps\hello\context.xml

file:/C:\Tomcat\Tomcat-4-1-18\webapps\hello\hello.war

I'm not sure this is a valid URL. Use \\ for backslash
or alternatively
file:// not just a
single slash. See the manager app how-to for URL
details.
