adding the following in your context.xml can be one of the solution.

open your project and goto META-INF/Context.xml.

open the file and add the following, you may be able to acheive what you are asking,


<Context path=”" debug=”0″ reloadable=”true”>
</Context>

best of luck.

Hi Sachin,

Actually it is not a project it is one product.Its a consulting business software, we are using this software but one requirement is to remove the Context name from the URL(http://localhost:8081/myproduct)

we are using Struts - Hibernate -Spring technology. I have tried in server.xml (tomcat/conf) but there we need to map the source in docBase.

(<Context path="" reloadable="true" docBase="C:\Users\admin\Workspaces\myproduct"></Context>) and it is not recommended.The product is running from webapps.

This is the actual situation.Now would you please suggest any idea?

Thanks,

Aby

ok so it is a War deployment ?

In that case, Extract the War and then check the xml files to get a better idea. i might suggest you to check(or)Search the xml files for the "myproduct" as in http://localhost:8081/myproduct.

So you might get to know where they have defined the "context", i believe that the context must be defined for all project,

These are the bright ideas i can come up with, hope this helps.
