Subject RE: Deploying a war to the root URL path
Date Mon, 23 Aug 2010 16:56:54 GMT
I'm not positive, but I think Chuck neglected to mention that the
docbase needs to contain the war in exploded format.  If I'm wrong,
please slap my wrist Chuck.

Also, I'm surprised no one offered the obvious tuckey redirector
solution, which usually gets brought up a lot on this list.
You can always deploy your jira.war as normal, but also create a
ROOT.war that contains the tuckey redirector configured to redirect ALL
requests to insert "/jira" after the hostname of every request.  This
will add a little overhead, but probably only on the initial
http://hostname request.
