Subject RE: Adding a new webapps directory
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2009 14:42:30 GMT
Charles -
On a related note, is the appBase required?
I deploy strictly using the conf/[Engine]/[Host]/[appName].xml method
and have no actual use for the appBase directory.  However, all my hosts
end up pointing to an empty directory.  I'd prefer not to have it just
sitting around since it's not needed.
I think I tried it at 4.x and Tomcat wouldn't come up without it.  I'm
at 5.5.x now, going to 6.x in the near future.  Is it still required?

There is no means of specifying more than one appBase directory per
<Host>.  However, each <Host> element can specify a separate appBase
directory, so you can segregate your webapps that way.  You can also
create <Context> elements in conf/Catalina/[host]/[appName].xml that
have docBase attributes pointing to a specific deployment location for
the webapp outside of the <Host> appBase.
