Subject RE: Easy to read HOWTO's or anything similar?
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2002 15:06:13 GMT
Well, we have a server running, but there are a few "issues" there, there's
no huge hurry, but it's got to be done decently soon.
I actually had it working fine with a slightly working default conf, but as
you say, it's more about that warm-fuzzy :)

Like I said before, Im not comfortable putting stuff into production unless
I have some decent knowledge about how it works, and since I for once have
the luxury of time, Im gonna try to use it to get somewhat familiar with
Tomcat, rather than just making it work without actually knowing how or why
it works.

But you're right, my needs are simple.

Perhaps I've missed something in this thread, but if your need is as simple
as a single (or even a couple) JSP pages, why not just copy everything in
server.xml that has to do with "/examples", change that to "/your-app",
restart tomcat, and call it good?  For that matter, toss the JSP into the
ROOT and go with that.

Is it just for a warm-fuzzy that you are trying to learn every nook and
cranny of tomcat to get your JSPs running?  I'm not criticizing, it just
seems to me that the solution is very simple.  Sure, it's always good for an
admin to learn as much as possible about the software running on their
server, but that seems secondary to getting your pages running, at least to
me.  You can always implement more options later.
