Subject Initialize Webapplication on tomcat Startup
Date Mon, 12 Feb 2007 08:49:27 GMT
Hello and good morning (at least from Germany),

I'm running Tomcat 5.5.17 under Solaris 9 and have created a 
webapplication that
starts some repeating background-tasks as soon as the application has 
been started
the first time (in other words: I have a single controller-servlet and 
the init()-method
contains some calls to classes that create background demon processes 
for some system

Now, when I restart the tomcat engine, I have to call the URL of my 
webapplication to
have the engine initialize my application for the first time. I remember 
that there is some
option in the configuration of tomcat which tells the engine to startup 
certain applications
automatically. So far I couldn't find that option in the docs.

Can someone be so nice to point me to the right documentation or gives 
me an example
how to solve my problem?

Thank you in advance,
