Subject Re: The right path; in more way than one.

Hi Ed,

I'm not sure, what your question is. Let me try to answer like 
this: Tomcat will look for class files and jars in the various 
classes and libs directories. Read pathto/tomcat-doc/class-
loader-howto.html to know exactly.

You can have your application's directory anywhere, if you 
configure a context in server.xml. If you put it under webapps 
you don't have to configure a context.

For deploying your app it's probably the best to use Ant. Read 
the app developer's guide (pathto/tomcat-doc/appdev/index.html) 
to get to know best practices of the development process.

In case Tomcat complains about JAVA_HOME: In autoexec.bat it 
might be better to set the DOS 8.3 pathname. Go to e: and type 
dir to get to know the 8.3 name of jsdk1.4.0. (Something with ~)

Hope this helps.
