Subject RE: Tomcat Webserver
Date Wed, 04 Aug 2004 19:48:08 GMT
Tomcat is capable of server static and dynamic content with out Apache.
One of the main benefits to using Apache is to let Apache server the
static content and thereby reduce the load on Tomcat. By default, the
document roots for your various webapps are in
$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/$WEBAPP_NAME . At least that's true of Tomcat
4.1.x. I haven't begun using 5.0.x yet.

All of this is covered in the docs:

Howdy TomcatERs,

	I would like to know if Tomcat has an webserver inside it or do
have to work with Apache (for example) together. If yes, where is the
"DocumentRoot" directory?
