Subject [OT] Configuration of 5 country sites and 1 web application base
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2005 10:41:31 GMT
Dear List,

I'm after some external advice on how best to configure Tomcat and our web application. 

The web application is intended to run 5 international country web sites. The code base is
aware of its need to run different sites, and uses various parameters in calling backend services
to acquire the relvant content for page building and so on.

We will be running each website with its own country domain, e.g

as well as wishing to run subdomains

The question is, is it better to run 1 web application to serve all these sites, or would
you run each site as a separate web application and configure the build process appropriately.

Being able to bring down 1 particular site is the main benefit I can see for separate web
applications, whereas more centralised configuration may be a benefit for 1 web application.

I'd really like to hear your opinions if you do the same thing or have thoughts on this topic.

Thanks in advance, Allistair.
