I am usint TOMCAT 5.0.30 AND Plugin Sysdeo v 3.1.0 ..eclipse 3.0  
I am some other projects in workspace as well..

everything seems to be working -- I am able to stop-start tomcat etc..

now I am trying to develop my project in this tomcat..

so I created a tomcat project in eclipse .. like selfWebSite..

and I created a small index.jsp page .. but when i say

http://localhost:8080/SelfWebsite/index.jsp

I get the below error:

Please help



Also, if I understanding correctly..

basically my tomcat is in

c:\TOMCAT\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.30 directory

and I have mapped ECLIPSE TOMCAT to point to this home directory..

usually:

all the web application in tomcat goes under

jakarta-tomcat-5.0.30/webapps directory

But I don't see SelfWebsite being created in this directory when I created a tomcat project from eclipse... isn't this a problem??

please help me get this up and running!!!


thanks

Well *does* it? It should do (not a JRE)

where is JAVA_HOME..

I checked in env variables.. user variable and system variable.. and did it at both places but still having this issue..

if I start tomcat from command prompt --and just create a SelfWebSite folder in webapps and put the same index.jsp in this, it works fine..

If it's not there you need to create it. It should point to the installation directory of a JDK

i created JAVA_HOME at both places..

I think issue is with the way I am creating Eclipse Tomcat Project..

I created using

File-New-Project -- choose the Tomcat Project

Give a name

and in Project Contents I put the TOMCAT/jakarta directory..

C:\TOMCAT\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.30

now should I create a folder in webapps in tomcat folder?

I am not sure how to start a project..

ok, now even after I create a folder manually i am unable to hit it from the URL

basically I created in webapps

test
and inside test i have index.jsp

if i do

http://localhost:8080/test/index.jsp

i am getting

HTTP Status 404 - /test/index.jsp

type Status report

message /test/index.jsp

description The requested resource (/test/index.jsp) is not available.

looks like I have some basic issue

If u have your webapps in the Tomcat webapps directory,
be sure to start the server from Tomcat and not from Eclipse.

Post the directory structure of your webapp on this forum, maybe there is a problem there.

After creating JAVA_HOME, you might need to restart Eclipse and any open command windows if you are trying to run Tomcat from there.
