Hello to everyone,

Tomcat Manager contains all the project links. How can I get all the project paths with project name.

for e.g

application name --> student management
Path name --> c:/student/webapp

How can I get all these information. Please advise.

Thanking You.

Thank You<br />Edward

Three ways:
1. You can access via JMX then retrieve needed info.
2. Use Tomcat Manager list command via http
it will return plaintext response, which look like this:

Response can be parsed using regular expressions if needed.

3. write screen scrapper for Tomcat Manager's web GUI (use httpclient-it represents the dom tree of the html documet - easy to retrieve the information).
