Ok, please remove the comments from your server.xml and post it inline, here.

How have you defined the Servlet in ROOT/WEB-INF/web.xml?

Never do the above.

Or that.

The 'path' attribute is not applicable here - in any case it's wrong.

Remove the path and docBase attributes from the ROOT.xml file.

To unsubscribe, e-mail:
For additional commands, e-mail:

OK, my mistake, I had JkMount /*.jsp and /app1/* rather than JkMount /* in
changed it as you mentioned to JkMount /* and servlets works now.

Also removed path and docbase from context.xml
so we can't have default application in ROOT and path in context file ?

haven't tried it , but I think we could achieve the same thing with JkAutoAlias
which one is recommended ? JkAutoAlias or adding host directive in server.xml ?

Thank you very much for help
I achieved what i was looking for.
