Hi All,
I am trying to add a new application(context). What I havedone so far is 1. Create an new Directory structure identicalto Tomcat's examples/WEB-INF/classes and compiledmy Servlet code into this directory. 2. Am now attempting to modify the Servler.xml file toadd the new context. Mainly by cutting and pasting fromthe examples Context tag but changing references from examples toApp1. Bring up Tomcat - comes up ok but gives the followingerror log containing: 2001-10-17 09:44:59 WebappLoader[/App1]: Deploying class repositories to work directory C:\Program Files\Apache Tomcat 4.0\work\localhost\App1

Do not edit the server.xml file. Just restart the Server.
Wish there was something that will automatically detect the addition of new context and we don't have to restart the Server.

SIMPLY PUT UR WEBAPP DIRECTORY or .war under webapps directory of tomcat.Restart the server. The name of the .war file / directory name is the context.
