choosing my own webapp instead of ROOT on 5.5
posted 11 years ago

as context path in the accessing url was myWebApp
not the default ROOT webapp.
On 5.5 this doesn't work anymore. Can anyone help me on this?
Also I wonder, what is the preferred way of dealing with this, is it to just put your default webapp in the ROOT directory, or to make it work by configuring
Thanks in advance!
