Subject Re: Just a few questions on my Tomcat Configuration

As for the transcription error? it is just that, I fat fingered some
keystrokes and it sent it in the middle of an edit.  I was going to take out
the second abc and edit it to say xyz and have the 2nd <Host> reflect that.

Not sure if I follow how you can have more than one webapp for any given
<Host>.  Would you just have multiple <appBase> params, or would you have
just more than one <Host> with the same alias's and info except different
appBases?  Or am I off base?

Here is a question for you.  In a nut shell, I wrote software to be
installed on a standalone PC or on a network server.  I am modifying the
server (and adding an admin panel to the software) to run for multiple
companies (now on a web server at a .com).  I figured that the easiest way
to keep everything straight and neat would be to bind each instance of the
software to a sub-domain.  Each sub-domain will have it's own schema, file
storage, and instance of the software that is bound to it.  So I have
created the $CATALINA_HOME/[sub-domain]/ROOT directories and added the
host.  Am I going about this the right way?
