Subject RE: Tomcat 6 web root directory
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2007 16:08:26 GMT
If you want to access your application with
http://your.server/your-app-file.jsp, then I don't know any way to not
have the web files in ROOT. But if accessing your app with
http://your.server/your-app-name/your-app-file.jsp, then your web files
don't need to be in ROOT.

Subject: Tomcat 6 web root directory

Hi, I am trying to direct Tomcat to my own web root director, and I know
you can do that by changing the host tag in server.xml.  But Tomcat wont
read any of my web file unless they are in a folder name 'ROOT'.

Kind of confusing but here is an example of what i did.
    My host tag in server.xml--> <Host name="localhost"
    Path to my jsp files--> c:/www.web/ROOT

So my question is, is there a way to not have my web file under a folder
name 'ROOT' in order for tomcat 6 to pick it up.
