Subject Re: Interacting with an embedded Tomcat
Date Wed, 29 Aug 2007 09:52:53 GMT
How do you intend to start Tomcat on the same JVM as your bootstrap
application? Bypass ALL of tomcat facilities and scripts and take direct
control, instantiating Tomcat classes by name from its libraries!!
Embedded through API Interfaces! Wow! What is the advantage gained?

I would leave tomcat stricly alone, configure its server and web
configuration files,; start, stop and control through Runtime commands
from the bootstrap application. Communicate through sockets.
