HTTP Status 404 - not found - Java Spring MVC

I'm trying to run my first Spring MVC Program on eclipse using XML configuration, I have no error markings on my directory but I get this response when I run the program. I also tried with Spring java configuration and got similar response. bug

I use eclipse Version: 2021-06 (4.20.0) and apache-tomcat-10.0.13 installed on my device, sending a request at http://localhost:8080/ returns apache-tomcat successfully installed. So far I have tried all suggestions I found online including updating maven project, maven build-clean install, cleared file cache, deleted temp folder in my root director changed workspace directory, uninstalled and reinstall apache-tomcat multiple times, cleared missing files on source directory in java build path but none of this approaches have worked. Below is a screenshot of my program (XML configuration)

    maybe lack *<mvc:annotation-driven/>*Annotation-driven injection (e.g. Controller, @requestMapping, etc.) results in a page always indicating that the relevant resource information cannot be accessed

    You write, you try to run your first spring program with Spring MVC. I did not dive into your details, but I would suggest two different approaches to learn and play around with Spring MVC:

    Spring initializer web site

    When I try out new spring parts, I always start at https://start.spring.io/ and just add my wanted dependencies (search for mvc when pressing add button).

    After defined your setting there, you can just download a working maven or a gradle example directly from the web page as a zip file. After extraction the files can be directly imported by IDE (e.g. eclipse, intelliJ, etc.)

    Official Spring MVC tutorial

    When you are searching a good and out-of-the-box working MVC example you should look at https://spring.io/guides/gs/serving-web-content/

    This works well and you can start directly without dependency problems etc.

    Try adding tomcat jasper dependency to pom.xml

    <dependency>
        <groupId>org.apache.tomcat</groupId>
        <artifactId>tomcat-jasper</artifactId>
        <version>10.1.0-M5</version>
    </dependency>
    

    check tomcat version before adding the dependency

    In my case and as i searched internet - tomcat 10 does not work. I downloaded tomcat 9 and 404 disappeared. Spring MVC 5 does not work on Tomcat 10. This is because Tomcat 10 is based on Jakarta EE 9 where package names for APIs have changed from javax.* to jakarta.*.
