Subject RE: JVM per Context
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2008 19:26:07 GMT

Thanks, my version of tomcat 5.5.26. My mistake I was looking at tomcat 3.3
documentation: .

Yes defining contexts in the Server.xml is discouraged but I'm doing it
anyway. ;)

For those in a similar situation I'm going down the path of defining an
engine per context:

    <Engine name="engA" defaultHost="localhost" jvmRoute="jvmA">
      <Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps"
       xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false">
		<Context path="/eclipse/A"     docBase="/slot_A" cookies='false'>
		    <Parameter name="" value="/eclipse/A" override="true"/>

Using jvmRoute the idea is to use the clustering mechanism of tomcat to give
me multiple jvms....

This being only my theory I can only hope someone can either call me an
idiot or give me a few pointers in short order.

I will post my findings as I find them.
