Subject Re: Webapps exposed on distinct ports
Date Thu, 12 Oct 2006 19:16:54 GMT
Hi David,

Yes, I can give a specific example.

I have two tomcat connectors available in Geronimo (1.1.1):

   1) TomcatWebConnector (port 8080)
   2) Tomcat2 (port 8081)

My application.xml currently looks like this:


I want to deploy this so that the application is available on the  
tomcat connector I defined on port 8081 (named Tomcat2).  The wiki  
shows a 'web-app' section under the 'module' element, but it doesn't  
seem to be valid (parse errors if I try to use it).  When I deploy it  
the way it is now, my application becomes available on both ports,  
whereas I only want it available on one of the connectors (and the  
specific one I specify somewhere!).

Any help is greatly appreciated, and thanks for looking at this!
