Subject RE: tomcat.conf vs tomcat-apache.conf
Date Thu, 13 Jul 2000 16:33:47 GMT
Thanks a lot Jeffrey,

that is the thing I was just thinking about... personally I think that it
makes sense trying to 'automatize' as much as possible the 'deployment
process'... and it seems reasonable to me doing that by using the web.xml
files in our .war distribution files to regenerate the server.xml on
Tomcat's startup...

Once more, thanks for your time and attention...

Well I think that they are working on some automatic context detection for
3.2 which would make server.xml automatically generated with the right
contexts for whatever webapps you have deployed (or in .war files which it
will automatically expand even in 3.1). For now though, we do have to
manually code the contexts in ourselves :(

So, as you said, Jeffrey I understand that I can deploy my webapps as .war
files. That way I can rely on Tomcat to automaticaly expand all the
subdirectory structure for my webapp... but I still have to 'code by hand'
the virtual URI's for my webapp... is it right?

As I understand it, the server.xml file is not automatically generated. It
is the main tool for configuring tomcat's overall configuration (at least if
you want to use the automatically generated apache-tomcat.conf) Web.xml in
the conf folder is a place to set default values for anything that you leave
out in the web.xml files for individual projects. I don't know how things
work in 3.2B but that seems to be how they work in 3.1

( If I'm wrong someone please correct me )

Ok... but I was just wondering if the contents of server.xml are also
automatically generated (may starting from the several web.xml of each
webapp deployed to the $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps directory)...

yes it is automatically generated from the contents of server.xml.
