Tomcat: Display a static page if missig application?

+2 votes

I want to display a static html page to the user if he wants to access a missing application. The goal is to display this page while updating (redeploy) the application to Tomcat. If the application is available, the user must access the application.

Is there a possibility to do this?

Upgrading from tomcat 6.0.35 to 6.0.36 causes a simple jsp page to require about 20 minutes to load.

We have two clients that are running in an IBM mainframe USS (Unix System Services) environment and when they upgraded from tomcat 6.0.35 to 6.0.36, the simple jsp page in our webapp takes up to 20 minutes to load into the web browser. We have other clients that are successfully running 6.0.36 in
the USS environment. So it is a somewhat isolated issue.

I looked over the 6.0.36 change log at,
but nothing jumped out at me as to which change may have caused the issue.

Since I am not a tomcat expert, I am asking for help on how to diagnose this issue.

Are there certain logging options that could be enabled?

I am trying to generate static website based on dynamic site running on tomcat so I can take some load off my app servers.

A twist here is that we are serving different pages based on user location (Application has a logic that checks user IP and display content based on user location) and wondering is there a tool like wget that also accepts any locale?

How do I start and stop just the tomcat admin application from a command line?

I had someone try to guess the password to my Tomee-Plume server last night. Thankfully I changed the default password and the hacker only tried twice. I want to be able to keep the admin application closed most of the time. On the rare occasion that I need access to the tomcat admin console I would like to start it up only for a brief period of time and then stop it.

Internet searches showed me how to stop other applications using the tomcat admin application. I want to stop just the Tomcat admin application not the whole server.

I have built a rails application with jruby. Since I have no experience with deploying a rails application in a production environment, I have spent some time doing a manual deployment on a linux server with tomcat6 as application server.

In essence, I have made a war file of the rails application with help of the warbler gem and deployed that on the linux server. I managed to get it up and running, but not yet exactly as I need it to be.

I have still some configuration issues. I hope you can help me or point me to the right place, since it may be a tomcat question. But I assume there must be some rails/tomcat expertise among the members of this group...

The point is, the URL in the development server is localhost:3000/invoices (using rails server)
The URL in the tomcat production environment is localhost:8080/rails/invoices

I can't seem to figure out how I can change the port and the document root (/invoices instead of /rails/invoices) in tomcat.

Any suggestions?

I've been trying to configure tomcat for multiple domains and everything I have tried was unsuccessful.

I added this to /etc/tomcat7/server.xml

and I created the folder /var/lib/tomcat7/webapps/mysite

Whenever I go to my domain all I get is a blank page. What am I doing wrong here?
