Subject Re: Question about config and correct start-up

The recommended context "ELEMENT" caused the following warning:

Jan 16, 2013 9:10:37 AM org.apache.tomcat.util.digester.Digester endElement
WARNING:   No rules found matching 'Context/Context'.

So I changed the "ELEMENT" to this --as below--
and voila ..... the warning went away.

My thread seems out of context(no pun intended) because I made the 
unwarranted assumption that the original thread would be included in 
every reply & it should be....otherwise I have to 
re-iterate the problem, ie. thread...every time.

The problem I'm trying to solve is making tomcat do cgi, and the 
Apache.tomcat documentation says to do basically 3 tasks: (1) Uncomment 
the cgi servlet in the conf/web.xm file.  (2) In same file uncomment the 
cgi servlet mappingl.  (3)  Add the context "ELEMENT" to the context.xml 

So, now, as already covered in the previous parts of this problem's 
thread, the cgi functionality is still not working--at least not for 
perl--cgi files, which are all I've tested since this is my focus.

Question; do I need a Tomcat/lib/servlet-cgi.jar file?  Previous 
versions did -- well, version 5.  I am working with version 7.0.34 and 
there is no such jar file in the downloaded tar.  Now the servlet in 
conf/web.xml could be "it" instead of a jar file. However, what has me 
questioning -- there is also an api servlet in conf/web.xml--as well as 
a lib/servlet-api.jar file.

I'm thinking now that the REAL problem is Windows XP.....always been a 
dog....I think it has something missing to purposely lock out cgi. I'm 
thinking i should just throw it away & migrate to a Linux box.

Thanks Mark and Chuck for your help, and I'm still listening if someone 
has a current Tomcat-for-WindowsXP solution.

this is standard XML syntax.  The <Context> element should look like this:
