Subject RE: Tomcat for Netware
Date Tue, 05 Sep 2000 15:06:04 GMT
Hi Raj,

I'm looking at the issue with the default context.  I think it has to 
do with how Tomcat determines an absolute path.  As you have
seen, it will work if you add it to the server.xml file but I'll keep
looking at fixing the default behavior on NetWare.

This works wonderfully.  Thank you very much for saving my hair 
:o).  However, I've realised that Tomcat doesn't seem to be loading 
a default context (ie, you get a 404 error when you enter 
http://localhost:8080/).  I suppose that you could correct this by 
adding it to the server.xml file (as in Tomcat 3.1) but the lack of an 
entry for it in that file led me to assume that it would somehow load 
it automatically.

Oh well, now I just need to make my servlets talk to an Oracle Lite 
database running on a different machine and I'll be flying...
