Default HTTP status 404

Okay I know what this message is trying to tell me, That it cannot find what I have typed. This is the problem, I had been going through the JSP 2.0 book using linux. Now I am using a windows laptop. I have everything configured what appears to be correctly. I can bring up the localhost:8080 page and all examples using the links. When I try to navigate(manually typing in the path) to an example or just a simple hello world jsp using the correct path, I get this error. I can get there using the links, but not manually when I type it in. Any help or advice would be appreciated. I was thinking it was some type of browser setting maybe.

Hi,

maybe i can help you if you give me the directory structure since tomcat home. Is your application located in webapps? Please let me see your deployment descriptor, and let me know about your changes in server.xml (if you change anything).

Regards,

Nuno

I finally figured this out. The problem was that I had to create a WEB-INF file in order for my browser to read it. Also I could create a WAR file. For some reason I did not have to do this on my Linux machine. Thanks for offering you help. It is greatly appreciated.
