Hi,
If you have multiple applications deployed to Tomcat. Is there anyway to configure which applications starts 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc?
Thanks.

HEre's the answer:

http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/FAQ/Miscellaneous#Q27


What order do webapps start (or how can I change startup order)?

There is no expected startup order. Neither the Servlet spec nor Tomcat define one. You can't rely on the apps starting in any particular order.
