Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to do this within the server.xml file and it's a bit confusing.

I have 3 (and potentially more) apps on the server that I've got successfully posted and running fine. However, what I'd like to do is this - set up the site to default to myApp1 if the location isnt specified in the browser's URL - http://www.mysite.org/, Tomcat will default point to
the ${TOMCAT_HOME}/webapps/myApp1/ location.

So, the URLs 'http://www.mysite.org/' and 'http://www.mysite.org/myApp1/'
will point to the same location.

I also want to have the alias also handle the URL mappings - http://www.mysite.org/myApp2/
http://www.mysite.org/myApp3/
... (etc)
(and thus run their respective web apps normally.)

It's not very clear reading the literature on the server.xml docs on exactly how to set this up.

I'd appreciate any insights.

Thank you,
Chad

You can set up a context for root and on for myApp1 to point to the same docbase. That will give you two sepaate instances of the same web app though, which may not be what you want.

Othersie, just put an index.jsp in the root docbase of the root web app that redirects to your desired app.
