Which WEB-INF am I using?

Hi Folks-

I have a scratch dev box on which I have several db's and IDE's installed (oracle, mysql, NetBeans, Eclipse) that have their own instances of tomcat/apache that they install. The problem is that I can't figure out which one is getting used at a particular time.

I launch it from Java Web Services Developer Pack 1.3, but I have no idea which WEB-INF directory is getting used (there are like dozens on this machine).

Is there a way to find out which one is being used?

thx
I.R.

So um... if you're using the JBuilder IDE, why would you suspect that you're using anything but the JBuilder instance of Tomcat ?

Depending on where you have CATALINA_HOME (global var? only in a script? etc), then you might be invoking tomcat from one script, but because CATALINA_HOME is pointing over *there*, you might encounter trouble.

Otherwise, most IDE's are fairly 'good' at really insulating their particular instance of Tomcat. Unless you've had the opposite experience, in which case... you might consider uninstalling some of them.

not quite sure why you would think I was using JBuilder (I'm not)-- thx for the reply though.

I found the correct location. I had Apache/Tomcat running, then after Oracle9i was installed, it kind of took over- i just had to go find the new location- then change some things

I just didn't know if there was a quick way to to which instance was running at a particular time.
