Hello Rich, 

you made a wise decission to leave the dark side.......

regarding your descriptor: 

Your syntax looks fine, is it at the bottom of the web.xml (just before

I noticed the web.xml is really sensitive to spaces placed after ">". try
using an editor
which shows spaces (personally I am a Jedit fan). I had a similar issue
where the 
app just failed to start. 

Good luck. and let the force be with you ;-)

Subject: New User - Many Questions To Come

...First post...

I'm not new to web development, but I am new to Tomcat, new to JSP, and
pretty-much new to Java.   My background is in VBScript ASP, IIS, etc.

I finally figured out that I could not have my tomcat handling DNS stuff
without setting it to listen on port 80, and that IIS really loves
trying to get in the way of things.  I am finally past all that now...

[ My Setup: Win 2k Server; Tomcat 4.0.4; JDK 1.4 ]

First question...

When I try and put a session timeout constraint in my web.xml file, the
application will not start.  I place the following code in the <web-app>
(^C^V directly from Tomcat's example):


And the app is a no-go.  When I run 'list' in the manager app it says
the root app is stopped and the other apps are fine.

Anyone else experience this and/or have a solution?

Many more questions to come.
