Subject Re: Root context switching
Date Tue, 04 Sep 2012 11:26:07 GMT

If my idea was only as simple as renaming it to ROOT.war (this one I know
Basic what I want is the same functionality which google apps provides. So
I want to be able to have multiple versions of my application online, let
people try the new environment and eventually switch the root context to
the new running version. This enables my clients to try out the new version
and options before they switch over to the new environment and enables me
to fix bugs found in the new release.

I think I need a tunnelfilter or something for this, but maybe there's
something available already. I've looked at parallel deployment, but this
is mostly to serve the current users the version they are currently using.
