Subject Re: Mission Impossible: Tomcat + Apache ???

No one works like that, (well I don't) =)

You can configure the Apache's virtual host to point to a tomcat dir...

let's say you have your webapps in /tomcat/webapps/myApp/

you should have the following directory structure :


In apache's virtual host config, set the HTML root to /tomcat/webapps/myApp
All the static HTML in myApp/ will be served by Apache
All the *.jsp and servlets will be served by Tomcat

That should do it.

Putting your *.jsp in c:\apache\htdocs won't work, cause that path is not in the <Directory>
directive of mod_jk.conf

  That's what I'm talking about !!
  That's the problem I couldn't solve!!
  In all other JSP/servlets engines (JavaWebServer, Apache_Jserv+GnuJsp) - All the HTML &
JSP files are mixed in the SAME directory structure.
  How can I implement this under Apache-tomcat ?
  All available configurations hold all the JSP files in some webapps\ROOT directory...  
  C'mon! there's gotta be a way.
  I find it hard to believe that everyone works like that.

    the mod_jk.conf-auto tomcat creates authomatically generates the apache directives so
apache can see the contexts setup under tomcat. Whilst they use different document roots,
you can easily make them look the same my tweaking the generated directives. The .jsp files
& servlets have to sit under the tomcat webapps directory for them to get picked up by
the tomcat classloader. The jsp file actually gets compiled at runtime to a servlet before
being viewed.

      Yes, I've read the apache-tomcat howto, and followed it's instructions step by step.
      When I've put (as a test...) snoop.jsp in the c:\apache\htdocs directory - it couldn't
find it!
      Only once I've put it in the c:\jakarta-tomcat\webapps\ROOT it was found and compiled.
      So, I figured out that by default they (Apache vs. Tomcat ) have different "DocumentRoot"
      That's my question.
      I've also tried to point in the mod_jk.conf and server.xml the "/" dir of the tomcat
to use c:\apache\htdocs - but still no luck...
