Try copying someone elses war...I personally like the struts documentation war, but the example from tomcat should work as well. Copy it to the deploy directory, and then go to localhost/warname (note no :8080)
Thanks for your comment. I tried it out, but it works only when i type http://localhost:8080/struts-documentation. http://localhost/struts-documentation doesn't work (Error: HTTP 404).
I added in my httpd.conf the line
WebAppDeploy struts-documentation conn /struts-documentation
Is the starting order from apache and jboss/tomcat important? When i start jboss/tomcat first, i get lots of error messages in the jboss window when apache comes up.
I have to admint, I am using mod_jk, and not mod_webapp. But if you post the error messages, I might be able to figure o9ut what is happening. I'd like to move my setup to mod_webapp as well, but would like to understand it better first.
Anyway, post the errors from the log
i think i've found the problem. You have to put the examples in a war or ear file as explained in the HOWTO: root.ear - tomcat 4.0.1.
Thanks for your help.
Last time I checked the mod_webapp doc it said that Windows was not a supported platform, nor was there any plans for such support.
