I am trying to access a web application that was in different context in the same server (Tomcat 6.0.26). I had writtem below code in server.xml file (Path: \Apache Software Foundation\Apache Tomcat 6.0.26\conf\server.xml).

<Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps" debug="0"
unpackWARs="false" autoDeploy="true"
xmlValidation="false" xmlNamespaceAware="false">

<Context path="/est" debug="0" crossContext="true"/>
<Context path="/PeimeSamp" debug="0" crossContext="true"/>


My code in JSP is trying to print Context Object, but it is getting null.

<% ServletContext ctx= application.getContext("/PeimeSamp");%>
<%=thatctx %>

Could any one helpe how to make cross context calls in Tomcat? Is my server.xml configuration correct?

Thank you,
Ranch Hand

in the server.xml there is one proerty called crossContext. if you will set it to true, it allows the ServletContext.getContext() method to successfully return the ServletContext for other Web applications running in the same host.
