Subject [users@httpd] Comparable list for Tomcat?
Date Sat, 09 Nov 2002 00:37:07 GMT
Is there an analogous list to this one for Tomcat users?  Or can I get some
Apache/Tomcat integration help here?

Ah, what the heck, everybody's got broadband, right?  I'll just take my
chances and ask.  If there's a better place to ask this, just point me in
the right direction, please.

I have three different web applications I want to run on Tomcat.  Each needs
to run under its own domain, let's call them,, and  I have a couple of Linux boxes to
configure in any way that makes sense.  At the moment, I only have running, and it runs on Apache and Tomcat in the same box.

Now, I'm ready to deploy, which is a different application
entirely.  And I'm not sure how to go about this.  For example, do I need to
run a separate instance of Tomcat for this second application, or can I run
this web app on a different port under the same instance of Tomcat?  Or can
it even run on the same port, just with a different directory mapping?  And
how do I point to the right Tomcat application from Apache?
I've already done this once with, but I don't seem to have
enough information to extrapolate it for multiple Tomcat applications.

This is essentially the kind of issue a servlet-friendly web hosting service
would face.  How do I set up my servers to handle multiple applications and
domains?  In my case, I can trust all the apps, since they are all under my
control, but the overall objective is still the same.  One other factor is
that I'd like the ability to utilize multiple Linux boxes to spread the
load.  I don't necessarily have to do load-balancing.  Each box could be
dedicated for a particular domain and Tomcat application, if that is simpler
and easier.  But there's got to be an Apache server in front, distributing
the traffic to the appropriate Tomcat server.

I guess one thing that would be helpful would be sample Apache httpd.conf
and Tomcat server.xml files that allow for more than one Tomcat application.
Does anyone have such examples they'd be willing to share?

Any pointers, any answers, anything would be greatly appreciated!  BTW, I'm
currently running Red Hat 7.2, Apache 1.3, and Tomcat 4.
