Subject RE: Host Manager Questions
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2005 20:40:05 GMT
Since I'm currently running something like 70 some odd virtual hosts on one
tomcat installation I would really rather not have the manager application
deployed on each of those 70 hosts. Each host has only one context (the ROOT
context) and after the virtual host is created, it is seldom if ever
changed.

Its just really ridiculous that the host-manager doesn't serialize the
creation options for the virtual host when it creates it, or that when it
auto-deploys a web application on creation, it doesn't create a context.xml
that points to the auto-deployed context.
