Hi there,

I've looked around but can't find any guides (I understand) that help me on this...

I have tomcat 5.5 running my app (a war file placed in the webapp folder)

www.myDomain.com/myApp

However I'd like it such that www.myDomain.com goes straight to the myApp folder (hidden if possible). eg..

www.myDomain.com ---MAPS_TO----> www.myDomain.com/myApp

without anyone seeing this?

Possible?

tomcat/.htaccess?

Thanks for ANY pointers

Edit the index.html/jsp page in the ROOT directory in webapps. Add the jsp:forward tag to redirect the request for domain "/" to the "myApp".

And I thought, you might find this useful
