Subject Re: Loose end #1 -- tomcat configuration files
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2005 07:24:08 GMT
Many of the Tomcat components seem to need the concept of a "Catalina 
Home".  But this is not to say, that a majority of the components allow 
for overrides to particular directory structures and locations.  So 
without looking at the code, I would probably say its doable...but this 
is speculation.
