Subject Re: Question regarding deployment
Date Thu, 10 Nov 2005 04:02:32 GMT
Hi It's me again.

I am sure about it. I think you want to point tomcat to some other directory then
webapps. (like when you open http://ADDRESS:PORT/, instead of tomcat page you
want to see your directory listing). To do that, create a new file called
ROOT.xml inside TOMCAT_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost (default context directory).
Please cheak your tomcat documentation for specific context directory. ROOT.xml
contains:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<Context docBase="C:/Sample-dir" path="">
</Context>

That's it. Restart the tomcat and try http://ADDRESS:PORT/. You should see your
listing.

Hope I am right to understand your question this time. ;)

Regards,
Dhaval
