Setting multiple instances of Tomcat

Hi,

This one is simple. I tried searching online but not could not find an answer.

I know I can have just 1 set of binary folder and then copy a set of folders and configuration files to another location and use run 2 instances of tomcat. I dont know which folders need to be copied and where should the TOMCAT_HOME and TOMCAT_BASE point to.

Thanks for your time in advance.

(Although, I am good in Java but I am new to the web world)

Why do you need multiple instances of Tomcat?

There can be multiple reasons. I want to run web applications on separate tomcats, so I don't have to restart all the web applications

Are you aware that you can restart web apps independently of one another? Admittedly, for a production system I wouldn't do that; it generally causes problems.

No, I am not aware of that and would like to know pointers(if possible)
But still I am looking for answer to my question

Solved myself. referRunning multiple Tomcat instances on Windows (A note instead of creating the webapps folder, as suggested by the blog, copy it from original tomcat installation)
