Subject web.xml Question
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2002 07:48:40 GMT
Hi everybody,

Usually the web.xml file of a web application starts with the following:

<!DOCTYPE web-app PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 

This URL referst to the dtd file on SUN's server. I think most XML parsers 
like SAX need to read the dtd file to be able to parse the XML file.


What happens if I deploy an application on an Intranet which allows access 
to the internet only through a proxy server (with username / password 
authentication)? The dtd cannot be accessed and must be someware on the 
local disk.

I found that TOMCAT has a web.xml in its conf directory. Could anybody 
explain me, which XML files I need to change and where do I need to put the 
downloaded web-app_2_3.dtd file?  Is the web.xml in the conf directory like 
a parent to all web.xml files found under webapps\<application>\WEB-INF? 
(Something like the defaults for all web apps)?

Could anybody help me out of this XML jungle?

Many thanks!
