Subject one webapp, many apache virtualhosts
Date Wed, 23 Jul 2008 18:46:14 GMT
Hi Folks,

I have a situation where I want all jsp files on a particular system to
be served up by one context (webapp) in tomcat.

So in apache, I have a virtualhost who's files are stored in
/home/user1/public_html, and another apache virtualhost who's files are
stored in /home/user2/public_html. Is there a way that I can get the jsp
files in both apache VirtualHosts to get processed by the same tomcat
context WITHOUT having to make new <host> entries for each new site?

Basically, the customer wants the freedom to create new web sites using
the control panel software and just have tomcat process the JSP files as
necessary for each site. It would be ideal if they didn't have to modify
tomcat every time they added a new site to their server.

This is probably just my ignorance shining though, but could someone
point me in the right direction on how to set up tomcat to perform in
this way? I'm happy to read documentation  but it looks like there's a
lot that tomcat can do that just isn't necessary here. If I could get
just a little bit of direction on this, I would be in your debt.

Thank you for your help!
