Subject Deploying Sakai 1.5.0 with Tomcat 5.5.7
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2005 20:58:30 GMT
Hi everyone,

I'm trying to deploy Sakai 1.5.0 with Tomcat 5.5.7. I've received several
emails from people on the sakai user group telling me that Sakai 1.5.0
hasn't been proven to run with Tomcat 5.5.7, but I wanted to learn a little
bit on my own, so I'm trying to make it work.

Part of the sakai build process involves dropping several .xml files into
the TOMCAT_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost. One of the files,
sakai-dispatch.xml, is supposed to redirect the base path of Tomcat with the
following line:

<Context path="/" docBase="f:/usr/local/sakai/sakai-dispatch"

The problem is that when I type in "http://localhost:80/" into the URL (my
port is 80 by default, not 8080), nothing comes up. I know that the base
path hasn't been changed to "/" because the index.html file in
F:/user/local/sakai/sakai-dispatch is supposed to a redirect, but that's not

My question is this:

What process/program/class is responsible for reading and acting on the
directives in sakai-dispatch.xml? Doesn't it look like this isn't being

Thanks in advance,
Joe Bautista
