Hello ,
I am slightly confused with the terminology about docroot

Does this mean that it is the docroot of the webserver ?
Can an application server have a docroot at all ?

I am using Tomcat
In this case I place my application under "webapps"

Does each application under "webapps" have its own doc root ?

Thanks in advance ,
-satish

docroot is not a Tomcat term.
Where did you hear about it, with an editor/IDE, another server?

If you want to learn about the directory structure of a J2EE app
an the terminology used, I recommend reading SRV.4 in the servlet spec.
http://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/final/jsr154/index.html

Also the "First App" article on the Tomcat site goes over the directory structure of a webapp.

Author and all-around good cowpoke

Perhaps the term you are thinking of is "docBase" as in this excerpt from a server.xml configuration file.

In which docBase defines the directory location of the manager application.
