Subject RE: Order for starting WebApps
Date Thu, 22 Aug 2002 13:37:23 GMT

In your web.xml, use the load-on-startup element with an ID of 1 (or maybe
even 0) to ensure that servlet loads first.

>From the DTD: "The load-on-startup element indicates that this servlet
should be loaded (instantiated and have its init() called) on the startup of
the web application. The optional contents of these element must be an
integer indicating the order in which the servlet should be loaded. If the
value is a negative integer, or the element is not present, the container is
free to load the servlet whenever it chooses. If the value is a positive
integer or 0, the container must load and initialize the servlet as the
application is deployed. The container must guarantee that servlets marked
with lower integers are loaded before servlets marked with higher integers.
The container may choose the order
of loading of servlets with the same load-on-start-up value."

Does anyone know how to specify the order in which Tomcat starts WebApps? I
have a servlet that loads a library used by other apps and I need to ensure
that this is started first.
