Subject RE: can tomcat do dynamic virtual hosts?
Date Thu, 02 Jan 2003 18:51:42 GMT

Hmmmm...interesting point.  What does the admin webapp do, then, that you
couldn't do from the command line?  Is there something similar to Apache's
'apachectl restart' for Tomcat?

Can you call the admin webapp with a URL and have it do things?  If so,
that's the answer to the original post...you would just need a script to
send the appropriate command, much like ant would or whatever, to the admin
webapp.
