Added value of Web Module [message #179994] Tue, 26 September 2006 18:44 Go to next message

We have just moved to WTP 1.0.3 and we like it so far. We are currently
managing Tomcat(5.0.30) through WTP. We have our Tomcat deploying our
application by sticking a file in TOMCAT_HOME/conf/Catalina/localhost
pointing back to our workspace. We currently have no Web Modules setup. I
was wondering what added value would that bring if we did? As a note we do
have "Run modules directly from the workspace" unchecked so it will start
our application and all in Tomcat. So maybe that would be a benefit to run
as a Web Module and just run our app, correct?
Thanks in advance,
Tom

For the typical Dynamic Web Project, there is no single folder that
contains a complete image of the Web application. Its content is under
the WebContent folder, but compiled classes for servlets and other
classes appear by default under the project's "build/classes" folder.
Assembly of these folders, and potentially other dependencies, occurs
when the project is published to a server, which happens automatically
after the project is added to the server. This suggests that your file
under the "conf/Catalina/localhost" directory may not be getting
everything. It depends on what is actually in your project.

Cheers,
Larry
