Subject RE: admin tool, missing Environment Entries

I can't fill them in, they aren't even listed, I've got an empty page. It's
like the admin tool can't find web.xml

Ya you're right, as you can see I don't have a very good grasp of the Tomcat
architecture. I was hoping for a quick fix for the missing entries, but I
see I 'm going to have to start some heavy reading.

It's an extra service, I still have the Catalina service in the server.xml
as well. But I guess there is no reason to separate my application, I'm olny
running 2 applications under tomcat.

Thanks for the info Chuck. I think I'll stop trying to force the thing to
work and just start slowly with a clean install and some reading.
