Subject Could someone explain why webapps is the root for JSP?
Date Fri, 10 May 2002 14:30:49 GMT
Is there a reason why I can't use the root of my website as the JSP
root? I'd like to use default.jsp as my "welcome" file, but it comes up
in the browser as the code itself, not the JSP page.

I guess I'm going out to buy a JSP book today, but this is something I
think belongs more to Tomcat than to JSP. I know in the server.xml it's
set up to use an appBase of webapps. But the files have to be in the
ROOT directory under THAT directory. I guess I'm not sure why... I would
think webapps would be the place for the default.jsp file.

Anyone wanna explain to a newbie?
