Subject Tomcat 3.3 and 4.x tuning via command line
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2002 08:28:01 GMT
Hi to all,

You should all know that there is a very good Tomcat 3.3/4.0
plugin for the OSS IDE eclipse (, available

This plugin allow eclipse developper to launch Tomcat from
the IDE, stop, restart and configure many parameters like
tomcat_home. Tomcat could be a binary version installed on
your disk or a project on the IDE, allowing you to debug
it from IDE.

I'm discussing with the plugin developper, Bruno Leroux, 
to see if it could be possible to add some functionnalities 
to the plugin to defines webapps to be used, which could
be part of the project workbench, and why not override
some of the server.xml settings like http, ajp listen
ports, works and log dir.

And that could be very usefull for eclipse developpers,
but also for sites which could use it to have multiples
instances running in production from a common location,
but with differents settings.

It could allow us to launch many different instances of
Tomcat, a major functionnality found on WebSphere, where
you got a single admin interface which launch many JVM,
on local machine or remote systems, each JVM running a
copy of websphere. 

And that could be a real bonus for tomcat, if we later 
develop a tomcat launcher service which could do that, 
via a native/jni daemon. 

In that case we need to add parameters in tomcat command
line (vm or args) to do such overriding.

I was thinking to add parms like :

-override ajp13@8109 -override ajp12@8107 -override http@8180 
-override logs@/var/tomcat3/logsxxx -override works@/var/tomcat3/worksxxx
-addwebapp /var/tomcat3/webappxxx -addwebapp /var/tomcat3/webappyyy

Do you agree on these modifications ?

If so I start to see where to do the modifications on TC 3.3,
some recommandations will be greatly usefull, but who could 
the same for TC 4.0 ?
