Subject Re: Tomcat Config Question
Date Mon, 14 Dec 2009 18:46:24 GMT

Do I just move the <context> statements out of server.xml and into
or is there something else I have to do. If thats all I have to do do I
place them before or after the watched element tag that is already in the
context.xml file?
