Subject Tomcat and IIS
Date Tue, 03 Dec 2002 17:00:40 GMT


I installed Tomcat 3.3.1, win2K server with IIS 

I followed the IIS HowTo and did all the additional IIS setup to have IIS redirect jsp/servlets
to tomcat (started tomcat with jkconf option, generated the files
in conf/auto, created Jakarta virtual directory on isapi_redirect.dll, restarted tomcat, etc)

I have a simple test1.jsp with content:

<% String thispage="test1.jsp"; %>
this page is <%=thispage %> 

I am able to see a "this page is test1.jsp" when I do:



but when I try to see it in the web app that I set up (which is not not under c:\tomcat\webapps)
I don't get to see the jsp part (I only see "this page is")


"i1440" is a virtual directory that points to a directory path F:\i1440root\opt\i1440\webapps\i1440

this directory has a WEB-INF under it, and a web.xml is inside this WEB-INF directory.

At this point, the content of web.xml is very simple:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE web-app
    PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems, Inc.//DTD Web Application 2.2//EN"
   <description>JHU iTrack</description>

also, the content of c:\tomcat\conf\apps-i1440.xml is

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
   <Context path="/i1440" 

Why am I doing wrong? why am I not able to see a test1.jsp under my i1440 web app? is tehre
a restriction in Tomcat that your webapp needs to be under c:\tomcat\webapps  ?

Thanks in advance for your help
