I don't know what magic is happening here. I kinda find it funny but when I set a context using a tomcat admin app it works the first time... But once I restart the server, it disappears. I can't even find the xml file that matches my app in CATALINA_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost. This is really weird, please help... Thanks!

Could you explain a little more how you create a new context ?

Hmmm... I guess I was too excited getting a reply... Anyway... Here's how I created the context.

1. I invoked the admin app in the url bar..


http://localhost:8087/admin/ - I chose 8087 to prevent conflict with other web/app servers in the future.


2. logged in, clicked on host(localhost) then from the dropdown menu on the upper left I chose "Create new context".

3. I filled in the following information

Document Base: C:\Eclipse\Workspace\JDBCStrutsTest\.deployables\JDBCStrutsTest

Path: /test

4. Saved using the save button on the lower right...

It then appears on the left panel(frame) along with the other contexts(apps). But when I restart the server, it disappears... I hope I explained it well enough... Please help... Thanks!

There's a button in the top frame. I don't know in English. Maybe "Reflect changes" ? It's a button next to "Logout".
Did you press it ?

The "Save" button will only save the information in the current page, but the changes will not be reflected to the server until you press the top frame button.

I've found a picture. It's the "Commit Changes" button.
Press it after you've saved your new context.
