Subject Re: Fw: Tomcat 5.0.28 jdbc error "Name jdbc is not bound in this Context" on WindowsXP.
Date Sun, 20 Jan 2013 19:49:08 GMT
"shouldn't it be easy to determine where the file should go in your 
development environment?"
One would think so.   On the linux environment it is under etc/Tomcat5.5/ 
the same directory as server.xml
However, when I put it in the ...conf directory on Windows, it appears that 
it is ignored, in the eclipse console startup log I don't see any entry for 
context.xml.

I have tried to find Tomcat5 documentation on placement of context.xml file. 
Even better would be sample code for jdbc context.xml.   I don't want to 
have a copy for each webapp, just one that applies to all webapps.
