Hello,
I am newbie in JSP. I want to use J2EE SDK. I can start server with j2ee -verbose command and I know to stop it using jee -stop.
I have a test.jsp file placed in public_html folder that I can view it using http://localhost:8000/test.jsp address but I can't view index.html that placed in public_html folder using http://localhost:8000/index.html  or http://localhost:8000.

in index.html file wrote:

Congratulations!  
Viewing this page means that your Web Server has been installed correctly and is serving files properly.

How can I see index.html file using http:// ?

Thanks

I supose you're using TOMCAT right?
Have you changed the server.xml and/or web.xml files? if so, can you post them here?, if not, shoudn't you be accessing on port 8080 instead of port 8000?.

On web.xml you should have somethin like this:

  <welcome-file-list>
    <welcome-file>index.html</welcome-file>
    <welcome-file>index.htm</welcome-file>
    <welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file>
  </welcome-file-list>

If you don't? include it and try again, if you do, check your ports pls.

jarasa,
I don't use Tomcat. I installed J2EE SDK Only. I start server using j2ee -verbose only and place JSP files in  C:\Program Files\J2SDKEE1.2.1\public_html
I can run jsp files in this directory using port = 8000 but I can't run (view) html files like index.html.
Also I haven't any XML file in C:\Program Files\J2SDKEE1.2.1\ and its subfolders.

Thanks

Not really sure of this but as far as I read the J2EE web container only supports Servlets and JSPs so maybe that's why if you put an HTML it gives you an 404 error. you can always rename your index.html as index.jsp and will work tho.

But I think if you pretend to make a web application you should consider to install TOMCAT ir will be easier.

Right, as far as I think. Its not a *web server*. Tomcat is a web-server and Servlet/ container.
