IIS 5 + Tomcat - jsp served thru root, not a directory

Hi,

I have IIS installed and running smoothly.  It has a website running on a header of sub.domain.com. It also runs a site on the
default site.

We now have a jsp app running on http://localhost/app.

We want to change tomcat so it responds to the host header of app.domain.com and not to use the /app bit.

Now, we changed the following - on the understanding it would sort it out.

Rename home>\tomcat\webapps\ROOT to home>\tomcat\webapps\ROOT_tomcat.
Rename home>\tomcat\webapps\app to home>\tomcat\webapps\ROOT.


Update home>\config\amber.properties.
Change the following lines:
doc_base=/app to doc_base=/
image_base=/app/images/ to image_base=/images/
command_base=/app/dscgi/ds.py/ to command_base=/dscgi/ds.py/


Modify the Tomcat connector configuration file for the specified web server.

Update the home>\tomcat\conf\ntiis\uriworkermap.properties file.

Change the following lines:
/app=$(default.worker) to /=$(default.worker)
/app/*=$(default.worker) to /*=$(default.worker)


Now - this is all very well, but I havent restarted IIS yet, but I was wondering if:

- The stuff we have done is correct?
- we need to anything to the server.xml to get it to see the app.domain.com
- should I set up a website in IIS to respond to the header app.domain.com? and set its home dir to home>\tomcat\webapps\ROOT
- there is anything else we would need?

Well the solution is here...

http://jspisapi.neurospeech.com , we had similar problem and trying to find solution but too complex method of tomcat's documentation lead us to develop our own solution called JspISAPI. The details of installation is given in the website.

It has features:
1) eliminate 8080 port from urls
2) redunce load on tomcat as images and other resources are handled by IIS
3) support http keep alive for jsp and servlets
4) easy setup for SSL by IIS, no hassle for setting up SSL for tomcat
