Subject Re: Deployment trouble: Directory Listing For /
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2003 16:50:05 GMT
Hi there,

Thanks for your help.

In the main server.xml file, I have only:
<Context path="" docBase="ROOT" debug="0"/>
as a context.

I have a directory:
/var/tomcat4/webapps that contains news.xml
This file contains:
<Context path="/news" docBase="../server/webapps/news"
        debug="9" privileged="true">

 <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
             prefix="news_log." suffix=".txt"


In ../server/webapps/news/WEB-INF, there's a file called web.xml, which is
included below.

Does this answer your question?

Is the web.xml you quoted in the ROOT context or in your own context?
The url-pattern in web.xml is relative to the context root.
