How to set a user application as default application in TOMCAT

Hi,

I have deployed my application in Tomcat webapps and have also configured IIS 5.0 with Tomcat 4.1. When i give the URL of the application, it sends the request to IIS which in turn redirects the request to Tomcat.

However, when the URL is given , the index.jsp page of TOMCAT is picked up and not the welcome page that has been specified in the web.xml of the application.

Please let me know what settings should be given in the server.xml of TOMCAT so as to set my application as default and when the URL of the application is given, the welcome page specified in web.xml of the application is picked..

Thanks

Where have you placed your application files?

Tomcat usually considers the application under web-apps/ROOT to be the default application.
