Upgrading tomcat; help with context container

Hello all,

I am currently upgrading from a very old version of tomcat to the newest version 6.x. I am having alot of problems getting the context path to work. Here are the two different server.xml files.



I know this is probably very long but, I have been fighting with this for a while now. I am not very knowledgable on tomcat. Any help would be great.

Thank you!

I haven't delved into Tomcat 6, but if it's anything like the changes from Tomcat 4 to Tomcat 5 you aren't going to be able to just copy and massage the server.xml -- the changes are too vast.

Rather, you may want to start with the generic server.xml (copy it first so that you don't lose it), and add things to it one at a time, testing along the way, until you get all your settings migrated.

I found that it's usually a great opportunity to make sure no "cruft" has accumulated in the server.xml.

Again, this is extraplolating from my experiences with migrating Tomcat 4 to 5; not any concrete experience with 5 to 6.
