Subject RE: Web application directory structure

Are you using the autoDeploy or deployOnStartup feature (usually in the
Host configuration in server.xml)?  If you manually specify a Context
and use one of the automatic deployment features, you're likely to have
issues with your application; at least I did.  Try setting both of those
parameters to false, manually exploding your .war file, then restarting

You're right in that it should work.  I can only guess the most likely
reason this might fail is your web.xml configuration.  Look for servlet
mappings that might catch the data/test1.html url.  Your log files
should have more information.  Also check to be sure the tomcat service
has read privilege on the file and it's directory.
