Subject [users@httpd] Apache http via tomcat WAR or Directory URL syntax (tomcat server.xml) for WAR application not working
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2018 14:05:01 GMT
I am attempting to launch a WAR web application from a tomcat service (tomcat 9.0.2, windows
server 2008 R2), after invoking a URL in a browser (Firefox) hosted by an Apache HTTP server
(Apache 2.4). The documentation ...

https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SS6RHZ_6.0.6/com.ibm.rational.pe.install.doc/topics/t_rpeng_tomcat.html
https://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/html-manager-howto.html#Deploy_a_Directory_or_WAR_by_URL)

states that the tomcat server.xml configuration file should have an entry:

<Context path="/" WAR or Directory URL: file:path to war file (which in this case is C:\Program
Files (x86)\apache-tomcat-9.0.6\webapps\OracleStatus.war)

The Catalina log file entry gives the following error message ....
25-Jun-2018 14:49:51.158 WARNING [main] org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.load Catalina.start
using conf/server.xml: Attribute name "WAR" associated with an element type "Context" must
be followed by the ' = ' character.

The tomcat service then fails to start.

Please advise as to correct syntax to use in the server.xml configuration file.
