According to the configurations you posted, the full path of your login 
servlet is /smsinfo/smsinfo/login.  I doubt that was what you were 
really after.  The URL mapping in web.xml is relative to the webapp, not 
the root.

Also, if this is tomcat 5.x, you should put your <Context> definition in 
it's own xml file in conf/Catalina/localhost.  Context definitions in 
server.xml is discouraged in newer tomcat versions.
