I have an application that runs in Tomcat 5.5. To access the application I use a url like this:

http://company.com:8080/appname

This application stores images on a different drive on the server. I would like to an alias so I can acess the images like this:

http://company.com:8080/appname_images

What file needs to be edited and what is the syntax?

Thanks

hmm, I added this under the <Host> section of my server.xml:

<Context path="/myimages"
             docBase="c:\path\to\images"
             reloadable="true"
             crossContext="true" />

Then I restarted Apache Tomcat but I get Http 404 when I try to hit the url

HTTP Status 404 - /myimages/
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
type Status report
message /myimages/
description The requested resource (/myimages/) is not available.

Ah, it was working. You're right, there isn't an index.htm but I can reference my images when I added one to the url.

Thanks for your help.
