Subject Automatic generation of user webapps (http://localhost/~user/webapp)
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT
In Chapter 9.1 the Java Servlet Specification 2.3 says:

"A servlet container can establish rules for automatic generation of web applications. For
example a ~user/ mapping could be used to map to a web application based at /home/user/public_html/."

Does Tomcat 4 support this? I know, the specification explicitly says "can," but this feature
would be really useful! All servlet developers could just put their web applications into
$HOME/webapps and Tomcat would automatically create them a context on startup.

The WebAppDeploy directive does not seem to support this. Can it be achieved somehow else?

thanks,
Christoph
