Locate Reason For 404 Error

I'm going through the java applications tutorial on lynda.com.  They've had me set up Eclipse Luna, and WAMP.  I've gotten though the jsp part fine.  The nest step uses a java program and i'm getting 'http status 404'   description 'The requested resource is not available'.
On windows 7, where do I find error logs that come from Apache?  Search found no catalina.out file.
I'm seeing "Apache Tomcat v7.0 supports J2EE 1.2, 1.3, 1.4 and Java EE5 and 6 Web modules" .  The jdk i have installed is 1.8.  Could that be the problem?
If i am outside of Eclipse and just try http://localhost:8080 i get the same 404 error message, however when running a jsp through Eclipse, i see the localhost:8080 .

Have you installed Tomcat independently of Eclipse? If not, your server is probably only temporarily run by Eclipse so won't be available without it

Thanks.  That's what I was thinking.  From what I can tell, i've not installed Tomcat independently.  The tutorial had us install WAMP server and it seems like that functionality is coming from WAMP.  What's puzzling me most is what is the requested resource.  The prior lesson was demonstrating running a JSP which worked fine.  This lesson is supposed to run a java program and I'm now guessing it requires some 'resource'  that JSP does not require.

Sounds a bit odd, since there's no connection between that and Java, at least until Tomcat gets involved

Better post a link to the tutorial please

I doubt if it works.  I can only access through the school site.

It's gonna look at your IP address.  If it is not on their list it's a nogo. :-(
