Default Tomcat 4.1.30 with Windows 2000 IIS

Hi there,

I am new to the JSP world. I am tring to make my first JSP program working. I've got IIS server (Windows 2000) installed on my PC and it works fine. According to the instructions in the Chapter 1 of this book, I installed Java SDK 1.3 and Tomcat 4.1.30 into the system. However, the browser could not display the expected result on "http://localhost:8080/". The message "Web site found ... " and then "Done" showed on the status bar of the browser. The error "The page cannot be displayed" displayed on the browser afterwards. The case still even I stop the IIS server.

I wonder if I need to do something like "configure Tomcat with IIS". If so, could you please provide the instructions?

Thanks in advance.

Windows 2000 IIS is used for ASP,not JSP.You can download Tomcat from http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/ ,then after installed it,you put your JSP page into directory of Tomcat/webapps/ROOT,then start Tomcat.
Hope this help.
Best regards,

Thanks Edward for your kindly message.

You are right. I did install IIS for ASP development. Now I'd like to try JSP and had installed the Tomcat according to the instructions in this book. But it did not work. I could not even see the index.jsp in the ROOT directory, instead, a "Page not found" message. Do I need to do some extra configuration and/or settings?

I run IIS and Tomcat on the same machine.

Have you remembered to start Tomcat? Have you got the Tomcat icon in the status bar to confirm that it has started OK? If no, then try to start Tomcat manually: C:\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.12\bin\startup.bat

Once you have verified that Tomcat is started then type the following into your browser:


You should be at the startup screen.
