How to Tomcat 5, Part 2
How do we install one Tomcat server to share it between many users?
After default (with default parameters offered by an installation program)
installation of Tomcat for single user you get such directory structure under
bin - contains startup and binary files
common - contains all the external libraries which are used by
Tomcat (not Tomcat classes here, look for them at server directory)
conf - all major configuration files are here
logs - here you find "famous" catalina.out log file and saved
previous catalina.out and more logs, like manager.log, admin.log,
server - here are Tomcat class files, packed in jar files and plus
configuration files for host-manager and manager. Who are them? Read later
shared - here shared classes should be
temp - place for some temp things... Do not know exactly what it
is. On my machine I see bugzilla37035-safeToDelete.tmp file with 0
bytes length here.
webapps - place where your web applications are/will be.
work - here Tomcat will place class files after the compilation.
As you probably know, Tomcat "compiles" first JSP pages into servlet java code
and then compiles those servlets into class files. That's why Tomcat named
servlet container, not JSP container
Now, when you got an overview on Tomcat structure, we are ready to go further.
