tomcat and apache mod_jk2


Hi,

I have tomcat and apache running together using mod_jk2
I can access my webapp which is located in Tomcat_Home/webapps/ folder like this
http://www.mydomain.net/WEB/AAA

How can I configure it so I can access it directly by http://www.mydomain.net?

I edited httpd.conf file and specified
DocumentRoot /home/mylogin/someStuffHere/WEB/AAA

but it displays tomcat home page

I've spend a lot of time of figuring this one out but do not see how it can be solved.

thanks

It sounds like you have Apache/mod_jk2 configured correctly, since it's passing your request through to Tomcat. The Tomcat main page that is displayed is under /tomcat-install-path/webapps/ROOT - you could modify this similar to the suggestion at http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/HowTo#...9ced33c9506ffe to redirect users to your webapp.

Hello and thanks for your reply,

the link you provided provides welcome files but how do I specify a differed directory that I want to read jsps from?
I did not see it on that page.

Thanks.

The info on the page describes changing the welcome files to one that redirects to your webapp - that way the initial URL is just the domain name. If you want all of your URLs for the webapp to be off the domain name instead of under the webapp I think you'll need to modify your webapp to be ROOT and remove everything under webapp/ROOT.

I haven't tried modifying the webapp/ROOT app that way because none of my clients have needed it set up that way. Usually, having the main page as the domain and then redirecting to the webapp is sufficient.

Hello,
I thought it would be the right way to map my app with a domain name without redirection from ROOT.
thanks

It may be possible but I don't know a setting in the web.xml or server.xml files that would allow it. It's rare that the only thing provided by a domain is a webapp without anything else. Usually the main content of the domain is at the root of the webserver (including the documentation) and the application is provided underneath that.

Hello,

actually it is not possible to substitute that index.jsp page since it is mapped with a servlet
