Subject tomcat 4 mod_webapp config
Date Tue, 21 Aug 2001 03:51:11 GMT

I'm having a little problem with mod_webapp (or maybe I'm not 
understanding this properly).

I have an application deployed in catalina (v. 4b7) called "laserweb" 
(accessible via tomcat's http server port under /laserweb).  I'd like to 
deploy this as the root of a virtual host in apache.  I've configured the 
connector like this within the virutal host:

WebAppConnection myconn warp localhost:8008
WebAppDeploy laserweb myconn /

This doesn't seem to have any affect, as .jsp's, etc. are not being 
processed.  If I pick an URI other than "/", it will work.  (i.e.,

WebAppDeploy laserweb myconn /testuri

works as expected -- the webapp is available via 

Also, does the module have some way of resolving symbolic links?  laserweb 
is symlinked into the $CATALINA_HOME/webapps directory, yet the 
/webapp-info/ page from my virtual host displays the "actual" directory 
location (the target of the link)---I found this a little odd.  How does 
the module know?

My understanding is that using mod_webapp, tomcat virtual hosts don't 
matter.  Is this incorrect?  Can anyone shed some light on this?
