Is it possible that we can have multiple applications in the tomcat server but there is one single web.xml for all of them..

Is such a configuration possible?


Thanks in advance.

Hi,

That was an interview question posed to a friend of mine...
And the interviewer had said that it is possible....but I am not sure..

Any light???

Recall that there is a default web.xml that applies to ALL applications - perhaps that was what the interview question was trying to get at?

Hi William,

I checked the file and it mentions..


<!-- ======================== Introduction ==============================-->
<!-- This document defines default values for *all* web applications --> <!-- loaded into this instance of Tomcat. As each application is --> <!-- deployed, this file is processed, followed by the --> <!-- "/WEB-INF/web.xml" deployment descriptor from your own --> <!-- applications. --> <!-- --> <!-- WARNING: Do not configure application-specific resources here! --> <!-- They should go in the "/WEB-INF/web.xml" file in your application.-->




So yes maybe he meant this ...I think we can configure here...

Appreciate your reply...

Regards
