Subject Where Tomcat webapp contexts live on Debian
Date Tue, 15 Aug 2017 21:45:36 GMT
I think I've mentioned before that I have a Tomcat server on a Google 
Compute Debian instance, that I installed with an "apt-get," rather than 
from an Apache download.

I had to apt-get manager separately, which is odd to begin with.

And things ended up in unexpected places.

Some stuff (like the Catalina directory) wound up in /etc/tomcat7. Other 
stuff (like the bin and lib directories) wound up in /usr/share/tomcat7.

But the weirdest thing is where the webapp contexts wound up. The 
default ROOT context (which doesn't look quite like the default ROOT 
context of anything I've installed from an Apache download) is in 
/var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/ROOT. But the manager and host-manager webapps 
are in /usr/share/tomcat7-admin/manager and 

Setting aside any questions of why whoever set this up for Debian did it 
this way, all of this still raises a very big question:

How is Tomcat finding all of this?
