Subject RE: Place JSP anywhere on the web server?
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2001 23:50:48 GMT
Hi Jim,

JSPs have no context outside of a "web application" and as such, cannot just
execute from anywhere.  I imagine your question is how to change where a web
app resides on the HD.

This is using the docBase attribute of the Context element in server.xml.
