Subject RE: Jsp gest 404 error
Date Thu, 15 Feb 2007 16:33:15 GMT
Thanks Zack.
I do have the web.xml file in the WEB-INF directory.  I am not sure what
the heck is going on, becausee what happens is that the same tomcat
version is being used in windowsxp and linux slackware, and I am using
the same sample application.  The only difference is that unders windows
it works but not under slackware.  This whole thing started with me
trying a Struts sample application.  I will continue to poke around to
see if somehow I am doing something so wrong that I am not even seeing
it.  

Is there a way to get some logs going?  The only error I get is 404 and
the text that it cannot find such url i.e.
'/jspcr2/chap05/examples/somepage.jsp'
Thanks again.

Hello Again,

Every web application requires a WEB-INF/web.xml file.  If that file
isn't there, Tomcat won't treat the directory you created as a web
application.  As long as you have  WEB-INF/web.xml file, you can place
the JSP files in subdirectories and Tomcat will find them.

Hope that helps,

Zack
