tomcat/jboss built into panther

Just spotted this myself.

I've been manually installing tomcat in the past for doing my little web dev projects. I see jboss uses tomcat (yeah?).

Is it worth me changing to jboss? Opinions, comments?

I started tomcat by itself and was trying to add a virtual folder into /library/tomcat/webapps ...
/library/tomcat/webapps/myApp .... tomcat won't show that the virtual directory exists... is there any trick to getting it showing up?

also, trying to login to administer, what's the default user?

To login to the admin and manager contexts you need to add yourself to the users/xml file with the appropriate roles - you can then select your own username and password (whatever you put in the xml)

The file is called tomcat-users.xml in the conf directory.

Is this what you mean?

yea, finally got my virtual folder to show up. had to map the URL with a <url-pattern> directive in web.xml :)

working my way through the New Riders book "java for the web."

Good luck!

I got a few O'Reilly books a while ago and never looked back!

Are you learning this for fun or profit (or both!) ?
