Subject Re: Regarding tomcat installation on HP-UX
Date Tue, 19 Jun 2001 11:54:57 GMT
dear nilanjan,
                        the only place where u have to look is in default u have four contexts

u add a </context-path> element in the serever.xml file and set
autoreloadable to "true"..if u are running the server then stop it and
restart(tomcat does not support changes without a restart).u then create
web-inf and ur own web.xml and jsp folders and put ur servlets in
classes.then point ur browser to
