Hi ranchers,
I have a requirement to open the Tomcat Web Application Manager which has the list of all the projects deployed instead of the tomcat home page when ever i open the tomcat i.e when I use http://localhost:8080 in the browser. Can anyone of you help me. Thank you in advance.

On a top left side of tomcat homepage , a second option is 'Tomcat Manager' , look for it !!

this url , http://localhost:8080/manager/html will redirect you to the manager page, but this required the authentication , which done against the the data from conf/tomcat-user.xml file. So , you may have to SET the user name and password into POST request to above URL. I never done so , but give it a try , other wise you ask to tomcat community ! and this http://localhost:8080/docs/manager-howto.html docs may help !

Why don't you create a ROOT webapp with an index.jsp page that does nothing but redirect the user to the manager page?

For the record... that seems like an odd requirement to me.

Generally, the manager app isn't something you want to expose to the outside world, let alone make it the front page for your domain.
