Hi All,
I want to change the url of my application which is deployed on tomcat5.5

warfile deployed in webapps is :- DBservice.war

and the present url 's are
1. http://localhost:8080/DBService/health.
2.http://localhost:8080/DBServeice/lb.

New URLs I want are
1. http://localhost:8080/health.
2.http://localhost:8080/lb.

if you see the difference in both the url set is the absence of war file name from the url. please suggest how it can be achieved

Package the web app as ROOT.war (and make sure that there is no ROOT web app to begin with in the web apps directory).

Can you merge both web apps together into a single ROOT web app?

In that case, you can't remove the contextPath.
How else would the server route requests to the correct app?
