Hi everybody,

I have the following problem : i wrote a webapp which is deployed under Tomcat , this webapp is for several clients with a custom name for each of them.

I need to get the name of the webapp to put it in the database. I want to read the name at the startup of the Tomcat. So i try to write a custome Listner but i only access to the ServletContext and i can't find the way to get the name !

I don't want specially write a listner so if you have another solution to solve my problem i am ok !

Thanks

Stef

Try to use getServletContextName() method.
API tells

Returns the name of this web application corresponding to this ServletContext as specified in the deployment descriptor for this web application by the display-name element.
