Response to: Solution on 404 Tomcat Server side error !!

This is a great article, but I also had some trouble getting the example to work.

I followed the exact steps in the article and was getting a 404 error when submitting the login.jsp form. I changed my web.xml file to the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>

<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.3//EN"


This is assuming you have your .jsp pages in the root of the project directory “TOMCAT_ROOT/webapps/onjava/”. With this fix there is no need to change the action for the form.

Alex, thanks for heading me in the right direction!

Good Luck!

  • Solution works with servlets, but what about javabeans?

    I was very happy when these two messages put me on the road to running this example web application in Tomcat 4.1.18.

    However, it is not a solution for my jsp pages that use javaBeans rather than servlets. This is the error I get:

    description: The server encountered an internal error () that prevented it from fulfilling this request.

    org.apache.jasper.JasperException: Cannot find any information on property 'uName' in a bean of type 'coreBeans.FormBean'

    If anybody can throw some light on this aspect of the problem I would be grateful.

    Also, does anyone know why we are having to resort to mapping our servlets anyway?
