hi
i have one application which has its context path set in server xml (ie the app is not a folder from the tomcat ROOT directory),
eg /f/http/web/webapps/WEB-INF/...
only this app is set in teh context path of the server.xml file. should i also set the second app i am now building which is created simply via putting the folder in the server root directory ie webapps/ROOT/library -
$TOMCAT4.0.4/webapps/Root/newapp/WEB-INF/...
only this app is set in teh context path of teh server.xml file. should i also set the first ?
cheers
chris

To tell you the truth, I'm having difficulty figuring out what exactly you are asking.

hi
i'm asking should it cause any problems running to apps from the standalone server ? will the app which isn't referenced in the context path and is in
$TOMCAT4.0.4/webapps/Root/newapp/WEB-INF/... be ok
its because i'm getting teh following error when i try to stop tomcat 4.1

and i am trying to figure what it might be.
cheers

You can run as many apps as you want as long as each has a unique context path. I don't think the number of apps has anything to do with the zip exception.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
