My JSF application works in my local tomcat for URL like http://localhost:8080/MyApp/admin, but not on the hosting server, the URL there is http://www.myapp.com/admin Do I need to do something with 'context.xml'/ put BocBase & AppBase. I got these things googling, but could not understand what exactly I have to do. Can anyone help me with the exact thing thats has to be done to get this working?

Thanks | Abhi

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Abhishek!

Although it is possible to configure Tomcat to respond to a "normal" URL, production servers often place a front-end server ahead of it. Apache is a popular choice. The front-end server takes the "normal" URLs and reroutes them to Tomcat using a proxy or tomcat connector channel. This is mostly done by configuring the front-end server to let it know what URLs to route to Tomcat and what channel to use.

Can you provide me an example of what exactly I have to do to fix this?

That would depend on what (if any) front-end you use ahead of Tomcat.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
