Where to install New Web App

Postby nwenzel » 08. May 2006 02:23

I'm trying to install the BIRT project from Eclipse. The BIRT instructions say to save a folder to the webapps folder. In the past, when I had installed Tomcat on my own, there was a webapps folder. Through XAMPP, there doesn't appear to be a webapps folder. How do I get this application to run through teh XAMPP installation of the webserver?

Thanks,
Nathan

The "webapps folder" would be the htdocs subdirectory of your XAMPP installation directory.

Is BRIT a java application that will need an application server like Tomcat to run ? If so there is a Tomcat add-on for XAMPP.

That's it. It is a Java application and it does work on Tomcat. I actually spent some more time on it and ran the application on a separate Tomcat installation and was still able to connect to the MySQL database as long as Apache was up and running.

I think I'll check out the Tomcat add on so that I don't have to worry about all the separate services.
