Subject RE: simple question for servlet-configuration of tomcat
Date Fri, 06 Apr 2001 22:35:29 GMT
In Tomcat 3.2.2 (I know that's the version I'm running - I think its the version of the source
that I checked) the preference for
servlet/webApp is hardwired into the code that generates the automatic config files.

It takes no notice of anything in the server.xml file (which I think is at least a little
unfriendly)

To have the behaviour you requested you'll have to edit those (or actually the files you derived
from those when you first set up
Tomcat) In the case sited for PWS under Win98 it looks like you would have to modify the file
derived from
%TOMCAT_HOME%\conf\uriworkermap.properties-auto

HTH

BTW In my example below it looks like Tomcat is serving my static content. :-(
