Hey Guys,

Giving this another shot and running into the same issue, i need to know how to define the webroot of an application in JBoss, not sure if this is possible but its a requirement for the framework im using.

basically i have the following structure

/root.war/projects/app/www <-- web application root
/root.war/plugins <!-- framework files
/root.war/core <!-- framework files

So i have the whole /root.war directory correctly parsing cfml (my framework files and application files), now i need a way to tell jboss to serve all requests from my application root, ie:


At the moment jboss deploys the site like this

009-11-09 11:15:52,546 INFO  [org.jboss.web.tomcat.service.deployers.TomcatDeployment] (main) deploy, ctxPath=/
2009-11-09 11:15:53,062 INFO  [STDOUT] (main) ===================================================================
- config:C:\Domains\railo-deploy\root.war\WEB-INF\railo
- webroot:C:\Domains\railo-deploy\root.war\

i would like to change the webroot location above to

- webroot:C:\Domains\railo-deploy\root.war\projects\site\www\

can this be done? note i still need jboss to parse files under root.war/plugins and root.war/core since the web app needs these files.

Any idea how i can get this done, i have tried added context-path, appBase, docBase and a number of other things to

also tried creating

and added context, appBase and docBase to

most of which caused errors, can anyone suggest the right way to do this? or even if its possible, as you can see im completely lost as to how this should be defined.

Any help/advice appreciated, thanks.
