Hello all

I am currently working with Tomcat 5.5 and deploying one web application on it which is developed using jersey.
The url to the webservice is as follows :

http://localhost:8080/HelloJersey1/hellojersey/hello

Now I want the url to be as follows :

http://localhost:8080/s2/HelloJersey1/hellojersey/hello

How do I do that?I guess this is not a url-pattern which we configure by web-xml.

Thanks in advance
Mansi

You are correct. web.xml does not define the context root, and in fact, no J2EE-standard component does.

The Tomcat Context element defines the context root in its "path=" attribute. The Context Element can be defined in one of 3 places:

1. In a file in the WAR: META-INF/context.xml

2. In the Tomcat configuration: TOMCAT_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost/xxxxxxx.xml (the "xxxxxxx" can be any valid filename)

3. In the Tomcat server.xml file (STRONGLY discouraged!)

If you deploy a WAR without a Tomcat Context definition, one is synthesized, but then you don't have control over the context root pathname.
