Subject Adding servlets during startup
Date Tue, 09 May 2006 10:36:17 GMT
Hi All

I am currently using Struts 1.2.9  in combination with tomcat 5.0.28. I 
want to constructed my website so that its possible to import modules. 
Each module is a seperate package, meaning servlets are placed over 
multiple packages. The problem with this is that the web.xml cant 
contain servlet mappings because it doesnt know which modules are 
installed. To solve this I want to create one servlet that dynamically 
adds the servlets and their mappings during the startup of Tomcat.

I found a function addServletMapping in The servletContext class but the 
problem is there is no function to add a servlet. If I understand 
correctly you first need to install a servlet and then its mapping.

In short I need to move the servlet + servlet-mapping section from the 
web.xml into a single servlet that at startup adds the servlets to the 
list of known servlets.

Thanks in advance,
Martyn Hiemstra
