Subject RE: TryNo2: "path" attribute for "Context" element in tomcat 5.5
Date Thu, 24 Nov 2005 21:19:29 GMT
thanks a lot, Hassan and Chuck, for your replies.

Context element description (
: "path... The context path of this web application...The value of this field must not be
set except when statically defining a Context in server.xml, as it will be infered from the
filenames used for either the .xml context file or the docBase." 

I just find it a bit strange that tomcat5 derives the Context path from the actual filename.
Was not the tomcat3 way of setting the context path in the 'path' attribute better? Does anyone
know the story behind this change?

Kind regards,

You configured it one way and it didn't work.

You configured it *per the documentation* and it *did* work.

What kind of comment would seem to be necessary? :-)
