Subject Re: geronimo-web.xml for geronimo 2.0.1
Date Tue, 18 Mar 2008 18:07:31 GMT

Thanks a lot for the reply!

But, while creating our application, I am afraid we didn't follow such a
directory structure that is required by the <environment>, <moduleId> and
<artifactId>. So, using some values for these tags, provide with errors in
the deployment or while running the application. It is an already existing
application in tomcat, and we are planning to rebuild it into Geronimo 2.0. 

Can you suggest what may help me here?
