Subject RE: Apache Tomcat 6.0 loads blank page
Date Sun, 01 Feb 2009 23:14:26 GMT

you'll need to create a startup index page called index.jsp which will be located in webapps/YourWebAppName

then configure ./WEB-INF/web.xml to load initial display
    <welcome-file-listing>    
     <welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file>
    </welcome-file-listing>
