Subject RE: Questions About jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2005 14:32:11 GMT
According to the question, the poster wanted to know how to configure a context in TC5.0. 

Taking the context element copied in at the foot of this email, this should be copied out
into a file at

$CATALINA_HOME/conf/[enginename]/[hostname]

which is usually

$CATALINA_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost/

and given the name of the webapp e.g

$CATALINA_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost/mywebapp.xml

Nothing needs to change with respect to what he has in the file.

In terms of getting it looking at a whole webapp structure outside of Tomcat, you change the
path attribute to point to it

<Context 
  path="/builder" docBase="c:\mywebapps\builder"
  debug="5" reloadable="true" crossContext="true">
...

I am not entirely sure, but the reason for all this I believe ties into the deployer management
tool if you like to use that. The configuration of web apps is no longer bundled into the
server configuration which is a good thing. 

Note the above will not work per se in Tomcat 5.5, there are further changes to that
