Subject RE: Tomcat multiple instances runs as service from same exe file
Date Thu, 05 Jan 2012 15:18:55 GMT
Igor -
Since you are using Tomcat 6.x, why not just perform a second install.
The latest installer lets you install multiple instances with different names.
Each install only takes up 10MB and it is much easier doing it this way than the old way of
duplicating folders and running the procrun setups manually.
I run several servers this way (5 to 6 instances per server), and it takes a whole lot less
effort to maintain than the old way of doing things that I had to use back in the tomcat 5.5.x
