Subject Using own index.html in $CATALINA_HOME/webapps/ROOT directory
Date Fri, 31 Aug 2007 10:10:14 GMT

After changing port to 80 attempting to use Tomcat as a HTTP server as well
a container. 
When entering http:\\localhost I am getting the standard Tomcat display. 
However its being drawn from the index.jsp rather than the index.html due 
the message on the page detailing 
What I have attempted to do is place my own static html files in the 
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\webapps\ROOT 
Basically expecting my index.html to be displayed. However it only attempts 
to display the index.jsp page. 

I have tried commenting out the - <welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file> 
from the web.xml but this does not make any difference. 
I want to use the ROOT directory and force the index.html to be used. 
All i get is a Error 404 message.
Can anyone help me please?
