Subject RE: How to avoid load af a context at startup of Tomcat
Date Wed, 15 Jan 2003 14:48:06 GMT
The example I gave you is for uncompressed webapps. Don't let the war
parameter deceive you. The command for installing from a .war is actually
different. Check the Tomcat docs, Manager application section. Also, just so
you know, the war paramater here takes as it's value the path to the
directory containing your webapp. So if your webapp is in:
C:\webapps\myWebapp then that is exactly what you would use as the war
value.

http://localhost/manager/install?path=/bar&war=file:/C:\webapps\myWebapp

Thanks Dan, this is a good idea! I think this will work also for me.
Do you know if the "install" action accepts also uncompressed webapps or
does it work only with a war file?

Bye,
Marco.

One

> preproduction\
> src\
