"favivon" has nothing to do with Tomcat. You need to put the correct markup in your HTML files.

And you need to define two different link tags in the header - one for IE and one for the other ones.

my problem is that i am using FOP object to show pdf in new window using servlet.
i am using xslt and xml file to generate pdf file. and servlet is generating response using FOP object.
as the following code

FopFactory fopFactory = FopFactory.newInstance();
transformer.transform(src, res);

and the servlet response shows pdf in new window with tomcat favicon icon.

now the problem is that the response is in pdf so there wont be any <head></head> section. or html tags like <link>....
so what i was thinking that may be i can configure that icon from tomcat.
so what so ever page opens it shows my custom icon.

please suggest some solution.

Thanks in advance.
