Subject RE: Running Tomcat Embedded
Date Tue, 11 Jul 2006 15:21:55 GMT
Thanks Bill,

I've looked at that and we actually have it running that way.  What I'm
looking for is a way to duplicate org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap
class in my own startup.  I believe that JBoss does something similar?  What
I really want to do is get my version of Tomcat that I startup to work like
starting Tomcat manually.  I want it to read the server.xml and context.xml
files for web apps.  

Is this possible?

Most people use Embedded 
(http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/catalina/docs/api/org/apache/catali
na/startup/Embedded.html) 
since it at least has some documentation.  Commons-modeler has a simple (if 
slightly out of date :) example of how to embed Tomcat using JMX.  This is 
useful if you want Tomcat to run in a different ClassLoader than the rest of

your application (and at least personally, I find it easier to use).

In either case, you need to set the properties on the sub-components (e.g. 
Engine, Host, Contex(s)) yourself, so you are responsible for creating them.
