Subject AW: Xindice Tomcat How-To: crucial part on editing the Tomcatserver.xml file is missing
Date Fri, 28 Nov 2003 08:05:23 GMT
Thank you, Vijay, you were right:

I copied the xindice-1.1b1.war from the package xml-xindice-1.1b1-war.zip
to the webapps directory and restarted Tomcat (maybe it's even non necessary
to restart Tomcat). Now I am able to browse the database using the url

I wonder if anybody in this list has the possibility to edit the file
and simply could delete the section "Edit the Tomcat server.xml File" or
put there what Vijay wrote??

Next problem: xml-xindice-1.1b1-war.zip does not contain any command line
tool for accessing the xml database. Sure, I could use XML-RPC, but as
I am still trying to find out if xindice can do what I would like to do
with it I would like an easy access method, which would be a
command line tool. On the download page under Milestone Releases there
are 2 sections for binaries:

Version 1.1b1 - Binary (webapp)
Version 1.1b1 - Binary (jar)

unfortunately the link for the Windows binary is the same in BOTH sections,
they BOTH point to the same file: xml-xindice-1.1b1-war.zip

Again, is there anybody who can edit http://xml.apache.org/xindice/download.cgi ???
I guess there's a wrong link!!

ok ... I just tried to change the link from xml-xindice-1.1b1-war.zip
to xml-xindice-1.1b1-jar.zip, that did it. And I found a commandline tool
in xml-xindice-1.1b1-jar.zip, but it's not working ...

well ...

Just put the ".war" file in tomcat "webapps" directory. Everything would
be automatic from there. Probably you may need to rename the ".war" to
Xindice.war before putting it there.

What basically happens is when tomcat gets started up (assuming if you
have the default "server.xml" configuration) it looks into "webapps"
directory for servlets. If some happen to be in "war" format they get
expanded into servlet directories (or) files. Xindice after it expands
contains the necessary configuration to direct the tomcat how to load

Hope this helps,
