What i did is
1. Created a directory named test in webapps directory
2. Pasted simplest possible jsp page that is index.jsp there
3. Tried running with URL "http://machinename:8080/test/index.jsp"

But i am getting error message

"Apache Tomcat/4.0.6 - HTTP Status 404 - /test/index.jsp"

Providing you have set up the correct directory structure

you should be able to access the URL: http://localhost:8080/Test
Tomcat should serve the index.jsp page bt default.

in webapps dir, the dir name should be same as appln. name that u r specifying in url.

It means, in tomcat's webapps, appln dir name also should be Test.
