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

<Context docBase="/bld/blah/Run/ " path="/bld/blah/Run/" privileged="true" antiResourceLocking="false" antiJARLo

but it doesn't work , what im doing wrong here?

The path attribute should be that part of the URL that the user would type just after the domain.


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.

Example: myApp.xml

Also, the path attribute is ignored.
Tomcat uses the file's name (minus the .xml) as the path.
