When you access http://yourhost:8080
you should get the standard Tomcat homepage.
On the left, there is a link to the Manager application.
It should show that the correct URI for the "manager homepage" is "/manager/html"

That is because :
- navigate to tomcat_dir/server/webapps/manager/WEB-INF
- edit the file web.xml
- in the servlet-mapping paragraphs, you will see one like this :

If you want to be able to call the Manager homepage with the URL "/manager", then you 
should add one section like this :


and restart Tomcat.

This change, in effect, makes HTMLManager be the "default servlet" for the Manager 

I have no idea if this triggers secondary unwanted effects.

If it does not however, then I would respectively suggest to the Tomcat developers to 
incorporate this as a standard servlet-mapping for the Manager, since the other one is a 
bit un-intuitive.
