I'm not too sure what you're trying to do. But I guess you can make a war file and copy it in webapps. That would do it. otherwise I'm lost then.

Well, my understanding is If you're using Tomcat, you want yout html to be the user interface to some background logic such as servlet/ejb. if that's correct, just write your html, deploy that using a deploytool, make the deployment descriptor. the deploytool will create a .war file for you and then put the war file inwebapps directory and then restart tomcat server. that will solve it.

usually when you're talking about tomcat , it means you're trying to make a web app so that's the way to do it usually.

copy a new HTML page to webapps\ROOT
if you are running locally
the url would be


If for any reason it did not work find where jakarta-banner.gif , and index.jsp
that would be the root directory of your tomcat server.
