Subject Single webapp multiple contexts
Date Tue, 09 Nov 2010 16:22:19 GMT
Hello Tomcat Users,


I am trying to create multiple 'dynamic' contexts using just a single
code base. For example we currently deploy a webapps within a context of
let's say 'A'. This listens quite happily for requests coming in the
form of http://localhost/A/index.htm. What I need to be able to do is
have this same code base also listen for requests in the form of
http://localhost/B/index.htm. I have played with using 'fake'
context.xml e.g.


A.xml = <Context useHttpOnly="true"  docBase="C:/0600/ieseries.war"
path="/A" />

B.xml = <Context useHttpOnly="true"  docBase="C:/0600/ieseries.war"
path="/B" />


This seems to work but the war is expanded into both contexts and what I
really need is a single code base preferably without the requirement of
using a .war file. I have looked at virtual hosts but this seems to
involve changing the host name which is also not what I am trying to


Using Tomcat 6.0.29 under Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build
1.6.0_14-b08). CATALINA_HOME is C:/0600.


Can anyone give me a gentle push in the right direction if this is at
all possible.


Thanks in advance.
