Subject Re: restrict per user public_html to serve static files only...
Date Wed, 27 Jun 2012 08:01:48 GMT
Hi, Andre

How so ? can you explain ?
After all, Tomcat itself has to know if the resource being served is a
servlet or jsp page or something else, in order to serve it properly.
So how come you cannot do the same ?
ans : each user can have his/her own web.xml and can do whatever URL
mapping in web.xml to serve his/her serlvet ... That's why I can not
know in advance unless I go into the user WEB-INF to do the parsing
...

Another question : where is this "public_html" directory (?) actually
located, and what does/can it contain, other than static pages ?
ans : I configure tomcat to enable per-user web as follows:
 <Listener className="org.apache.catalina.startup.UserConfig"
            directoryName="public_html"
            homeBase=/share/home"
            userClass="org.apache.catalina.startup.HomesUserDatabase"/>

Kim
