Subject RE: getting Tomcat 5.0 to serve static content
Date Fri, 09 Jul 2004 06:56:08 GMT

    -----Original Message-----
    From: Matthew Hixson 
    I'm using Tomcat 5.0.26 with JBoss 3.2.4.  I'm attempting 
    to upgrade from Tomcat 4.1.something that was included with 
    JBoss 3.2.3.  I cannot figure out how to configure a 
    context so that Tomcat will serve files from a specific 
    directory.  The directory contains images and should be 
    accessible outside of any specific webapp.  The files are 
    stored in /usr/local/watermarks and the URLs to them need 
    to look like
       <Context path="/watermarks" docBase="/usr/local/watermarks"/>
       I've read all the docs I could find on the Apache Tomcat 
    site and used Google to find examples and I cannot find 
    anything that tells me how to do this.  In the previous 
    version of Tomcat I had put the above <Context> element 
    jboss-service.xml.  But in Tomcat 5.0 it looks like that 
    has moved to jbossweb-tomcat50.sar/server.xml. 

If you read the docs enough times it suggests that the Context element
should be an <anyName>.xml, in {catalina.home}/conf/host/

Where it hides, just the <Context> element in an xml file per app.
(I found it useful to name the file after the app)
