### General J2EE: Setting document root in jboss tomcat

1. #### Setting document root in jboss tomcat (2 messages)

Hi there,
Could I check with anyone, how can i set the base document root of tomcat? i know that i can set it in server.xml in a standalone tomcat server but becos tomcat is deployed as a service in jboss, i cant seem to find server.xml anywhere . my web archive has to be deployed outside of tomcat and tomcat in jboss needs to refer to it there

according to tomcat docs:
Add a entry in the \$CATALINA_HOME/conf/server.xml configuration file. This approach is described briefly below, and allows you to position the document root of your web application at some point other than the \$CATALINA_HOME/webapps/ directory. You will need to restart Tomcat to have changes in this configuration file take effect. See the administrator documentation (TODO: hyperlink) for more information on configuring new Contexts in this way.

anyone any ideas???
