Subject Hosts Created in Tomcat 7 Host-Manager Don't Process JSP
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2011 22:50:19 GMT
Running some tests with the Tomcat 7 Host-Manager and it appears as 
though hosts created via the Host Manager don't process JSP.

In my tests, I created a "" test site with a root directory of 
"/www/", and put a simple "hello world" index.jsp file in it. I 
then created the "" site in the Tomcat 7 Host Manager (7.0.22 - 
downloaded just this morning). The host was created without issue.

I then checked the host with Telnet:

jordan@jordan-M61P-S3 /opt/tomcat/conf $ telnet localhost 8080
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
GET /index.jsp HTTP/1.1

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1
Content-Length: 0
Date: Mon, 14 Nov 2011 21:59:45 GMT

Connection closed by foreign host.
jordan@jordan-M61P-S3 /opt/tomcat/conf $

Looking at the logs, I found this in the catalina.out file:

INFO: Deploying configuration descriptor manager.xml from 

So, I went and looked at the manager.xml file, and this is what it 

<Context docBase="${catalina.home}/webapps/manager"
          privileged="true" antiResourceLocking="false" 

Am I missing something? Is there something I should be doing that I'm 
not doing? Can anyone confirm they can run JSP on hosts created in the 
Tomcat 7 Host Manager?

Thanks for any help!

Warm Regards,
Jordan Michaels
