thank u for u r solution

yes, i successfully configured tomcat in eclipse, and i also started the server...but after that i am trying open the home page like http://localhost:8090/  (8090 is my tomcat port no)

but it display a message like "HTTP status 404-/" and " the requested resource (/) is not available

so,please tell me how can i resolve this
ok,  double click that server in the Server view.  it will show the details of the port on which Tomcat's Http Request will handle( it may be 8080).  so check there and give that port number in the url .  then it will work.  or else change that port no to 8090 and save it and try.

Inform me have you created any project there and trying to open that  jsp there ?

follow this and inform.



i already try with  that url also like "http://localhost:8080" , but no use the same message raised

i tested a simple jsp project...which is having only one jsp

Have you double clicked on the server you have created?  what it is showing can u send me the screen shot of the Eclipse screen with project navigation and server details(by double clicking on the server).


thank u
