Subject Re: Single WAR to update multiple contexts
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2009 20:27:58 GMT

Wouldn't it be easier to have ONE webapp and determine the database 
from, for example, the URL its invoked with?

Its a little difficult to know exactly how you are doing things but 
instead of having /ctx1 /ctx2 /ctx3 and mapping each one to ctx1.war
why not have a filter in your setup which determines that its invoked 
with /ctx1 and passes a parameter to the actual servlet which selects 
the database you require? You could have one web app as ROOT and do it
that way.

Maybe you could explain further why you need 200 separate versions where 
the only difference is the name of the database?
