ok try doing this export your project as a WAR file and then manually place the file in weapps folder inside Tomcat installation directory and restart the tomcat server and then try http://localhost:8080/fi/MyJsp.jsp

And get back if any error.

your war file name must be fi.war for running the above URL.

I've also seen problems with WAR files created with Eclipse (not sure what the problems is) but try packaging your WAR from a command line and then transfer it to the server for deployment ... my guess is that it will work.
