Subject Multiple Tomcat 5 Instances on a Win2k Server
Date Wed, 02 Jun 2004 20:15:29 GMT
We've been running Tomcat4.1.27 for some time using from 5 - 10 rack type
Win2k servers, JK2, Resonate and SiteMinder in production.

I'm working with Tomcat5.0.25, and there are big differences in the way
multiple instances deploy on a single server.  For example:  the same war on
tomcat 1 will deploy it's context xml snippet in /conf/Catalina/localhost
along with manager, examples and whatever else I elected in the install.

Tomcat's 2 and 3 do not deploy the xml for the various contexts at all.  If
I copy in the xml from Tomcat1 and edit any path specific "stuff" that will
resolve the surface problem.

This behavior seems to imply that Tomcat 5 is not intended for this
particular "brute force" method of scaling. I would like to continue the
multiple instance scenario, since jk2's failover capabilities let us fix
things that break without taking the entire server out of the mix.   Any
