Subject Re: Loose end #1 -- tomcat configuration files
Date Fri, 18 Nov 2005 07:20:20 GMT
I don't have any problems with your approach.   But I also am not the
biggest fan fo the var/catalina structure that Tomcat wants Geronimo
to have.  Is there some way to get Tomcat to use our directories
directly (log, work, whatever) instead of doing everything under a
Catalina directory?
