Subject Re: tomcat maven plugin + configuring virtual host for the embedded tomcat ?
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 03:10:17 GMT
Hi,

I have been developing with tomcat7:run happily for some months now.

But then i am currently expanding the development where different
domains would provide different behaviour for the same webapp (imagine
multitenancy and ACLs based on the domain or the server name)

To make this work in the development mode,
i would have to modify the hosts file, mapping several .com domains to
localhost + add some <Alias> to the localhost's <Host>

Currently i am using the standalone tomcat, doing :
- go to the parent module, install all modules, which results in the
newest WAR for the webapp
- go to the webapp project and tomcat7:deploy to it ..

Not as fast-development-mode as tomcat7:run (which doesnt include
installing the modules + WAR building), but this will do :-)

I may be too hopeful, but is this useful enough to be added as a new
feature of tomcat maven plugin ?
I imagine putting these aliases in the plugin's configuration in the pom.xml ..

Thanks !
