Subject Re: [programmazione] how to set context path on TOMCAT6
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2008 07:35:33 GMT
A simple way is to put in your web application a file named context.xml in 
META-INF directory, with the following content:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Context path="/reporting-application" />

then you can produce your war and deploy it as usually (a simple way is to 
place it in your webapp directory in default tomcat6 configuration)

Tomcat6 will make the rest of the job for you.
