Hi,

I am trying below examle on eclipse with tomcat
http://www.avajava.com/tutorials/lessons/how-do-i-tell-what-browser-is-hitting-a-servlet.html?page=2


I copy pasted servlet code and web.xml

when i start the server and go to the url from IE
http://localhost:8080/tomcat-demo/test

i am getting
404 error

HTTP Status 404 - /tomcat-demo/test

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

type Status report

message /tomcat-demo/test

description The requested resource is not available.


where to add below line

In Tomcat's server.xml file, I added a Context entry for 'tomcat-demo', the name of the test project.

<Context docBase="C:\projects\workspace\tomcat-demo\web" path="/tomcat-demo" reloadable="true"/>



Also how to create debug configuration


I created a Debug Configuration in EclipseSW for 'tomcat-demo', using the Bootstrap class (after adding the various TomcatSW jarW file libraries to the project's build path).

In the eclipse i right clicked on the project and Run Configuration i searched on tomcat.

I did not see the tomcat-demo

Please advise how to fix this.
 Any links resources ideas highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

You will need to define context element in the host element.

Refer http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/config/context.html

I am using tomcat 7. Can i do it from eclipse itself? how to do directly from eclipse. Is this example is running for you.


I wonder why they did as the java application instead of 'Dynamic web project' since it is servlet web application?

Please advise

If you are deploying application using eclipse in tomcat, there is no need to change server.xml.
Just check context root in properties (Right Click project - properties- web project setting.)
When you expand tomcat server in eclipse, is there your web project available?

Post your web.xml.
Also add classes folder in webinf. (in build path point it to classes folder)
