Subject In Tomcat, is there a way to make the roots of the webserver and servlet eng the same?
Date Fri, 22 Dec 2000 19:34:57 GMT
I am trying to migrate a legacy web application consisting of JSPs to
This application currents works in JSWDK and JRun.

The paths to resources (such as JSPs, images, style sheets, etc.) are given
as absolute paths that include the context name ("awi"). For example, 
a JSP refers to an image as "/awi/images/xyz.gif" and to another JSP
as "/awi/someDir/abc.jsp".  When this application is installed as
webapps/awi for Tomcat
the web server treats "webapps/" as its root while the servlet engine treats

"webapps/awi/" as the application's root. This implies having to make a lot 
of changes in how the paths are specified. The paths that are handled by the
servlet engine must be changed to "/someDir/abc.jsp" while the other
resources must
be preserved as "/awi/images/xyz.gif", etc. Is there a better way to migrate
Thanks in advance
