I have .war (downloaded from net) and i want to deploy that to my Tomcat4.1. I put the .war in webapps and on startup of tomcat it opens up and gets deployed. but the thing is it has multiple directories and the top most directory "samples" doesn't contain the WEB-INF but a directory inside this "samples" , which is "tsamples", contains the JSPs and WEB-INF directory. in WEB-INF/classes it has got some servlets (in packages) and the also has the required .xml file( i.e. mapping for servlets to /servlet/*) . But when i invoke the servlets (in web-inf/classes/client/ser
vlets) through the html (in /samples/tsamples/html/abc
.html) it gives http status 404. the address i am using for servlet calling is http://localhost/samples/tsamples/servlet/name_of_servlet
In the tomcat logs i have
2003-11-21 23:23:45 ContextConfig[/samples]: Missing application web.xml, using defaults only
Do i need to have an .xml in the "samples" ... ? Can anyone suggest something on this.
