Subject Re: Question on realm configuration in TC 6 / 7
Date Tue, 02 Oct 2012 18:58:02 GMT
Daniel,

I have deployed the context.xml to the META-INF location per web
application, in the server.xml files I have set the copyXML attribute on
the <Host> declaration to true.  I do not configure context's anywhere but
there.
