Subject Allowing users to deploy their own webapps within their home directories
Date Fri, 22 Jun 2007 13:51:12 GMT

I don't know if this is possible, but I hope the list can give me an

I want to setup tomcat such that users can have webapps in their home
directories.  Now, I've managed to figure out how to get tomcat to do
this for something like ~/public_html (in fact I've set it up for
~/tomcat as the public html is served by apache). During the process of
finding this out, I realised that each user can only have one webapp
i.e. the ~/tomcat dir is the docBase directory. Is there any way that
tomcat can be setup such that ~/tomcat is the appBase dir, so a user can
have: ~/tomcat/webapp1 ~/tomcat/webapp2 etc without explicitly
specifying these directories in the config files?

Many thanks in advance,
