Subject RE: Re: deploying as ROOT application
Date Tue, 26 Oct 2010 20:12:45 GMT
Well, I was assuming these filters are global to Tomcat instance and not specific to an application.
I haven't looked at available implementations of these filters yet. Based on your response
I take it that my assumption is wrong.

In that case, you are right, making my application as ROOT is a better alternative. Just that
I haven't been able to locate official Tomcat documentation on deploying as ROOT application.
And I didn't want to enter an un-supported experimental territory.

Yes, it /would/ work, but why in the name of $DEITY would you go to
all that trouble when you can just name your application ROOT and
be done with it??

You would still have to have a ROOT application to contain the filters
anyway, unless you're front-ending the app with something else like
Apache httpd.
