Subject RE: A Simple question to the configuration of tomcat
Date Thu, 05 Apr 2001 13:09:14 GMT

You just have to declare a context like this:
        <Context path="" docBase="/path/to/myapp" debug="0"
reloadable="false" >
in your TOMCAT_HOME/conf/server.xml. You should also remove the ROOT context
and the ROOT directory that is in the webapp directory.
Anyway, in real world, I mean in production environment, you should remove
all the contexts that don't deal with your app, and all the subdirectory
within the /webapp.
