Subject Re: Multiple virtual host with individual webapp dirs , one tomcat

Actually, if you put your hosts in webapps, Tomcat will automatically 
create contexts for them, However, these will be in the form 
http://server.domain..com/appname/. This is essentially the same as your 
.war suggesting.

Creating virtual hosts out of them is a different kettle of fish. 
However, it seems that a simple shell script would do the trick - just 
find each directory and generate a virtual host entry for it.
