Subject tc 5.019, web app deployment location?
Date Tue, 06 Jul 2004 10:27:56 GMT
I'm confused over terminology.

The 'root' application seems to reside at ${catalina.home}/webapps/ROOT
Logically then (with a tree analogy)
  other web apps would reside within that directory?
  Some of the documentation seems to imply they should
  be in ${catalina.home}/webapps/myapp, for instance.
  I.e. all reside directly beneath ${catalina.home}/webapps/

If there are alternatives, where is it specified please?
>From //tomcat-docs/config/host.html#Automatic%20Application%20Deployment

"Any XML file in the $CATALINA_HOME/conf/[engine_name]/[host_name]
directory is assumed to contain a Context element (and its associated
subelements) for a single web application. The docBase attribute of
this <Context> element will typically be the absolute pathname to a
web application directory, or the absolute pathname of a web
application archive (WAR) file (which will not be expanded)."

Which implies that *where* they should be is quite flexible,
but I'm unsure?

Regards DaveP.
