im doing migration from tomcat 4 to tomcat 5.5 im using apache 1.3 with mod_jk when I used tomcat 4 my app root was in different place and not in webapps directory and I did the redirection with this simple tag in the server.xml <Context path="" docBase="/bld/blah/Run/ " debug="0"/> and all my web pages was working from this dir and jsp pages are redirected to tomcat but now when I migrated to the new tomcat 5.5 I don�t see this tag any more .. when I was reading about the new config I tried to add this server.xml
You might want to get this up and running on Tomcat as a standalone before getting tangled up in connector issues.
Also, check with the Tomcat documentation. The recommended best practice has changed now that they've introduced context fragments (The <Context ... /> portion of your server.xml file can now be placed in a separate file under conf/Catalina/localhost (or whatever host you're using) with the path as it's name.
Also, the path attribute is ignored. Tomcat uses the file's name (minus the .xml) as the path.
