Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49523] Broken links on Manager List Applications page
Date Wed, 30 Jun 2010 11:03:51 GMT

The application list in the manager webapp simply lists all known contexts. The
link provided for each context is a convenience link for an admin to jump into
the respective context. The link assumes, that there is some reasonable content
available directly under the context path. This might be true for some contexts
that use e.g. welcome pages or have a servlet mapping for /, but there will
also be contexts which do not produce any reasonable response when their conext
root is called.

Yes, manager and host-manager are not general applications but instead provided
by the Tomcat project. Nevertheless producing special links just for the
manager and host-manager will bloat the code and only work as long as the admin
doesn't deploy them under a different context name - or doesn't deploy
something else under the names manager or host-manager. IMHO that's the reason
