This is a step-by-step guide to create a "contract-first" web service with Apache CXF. It's a lot easier than doing the same thing with Spring-WS. The project uses standard Maven directory layout. Define the data types ( src/main/resources/hello.xsd ): <xs:schema xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/200...

The default servlet for Tomcat is declared in $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml : <servlet> <servlet-name>default</servle... Therefore, static content is rendered by the default configuration unless you override it with your own definitions.

Change the welcome-file-list to display a default page in lieu of a directory listing: <welcome-file-list> <welcome-file>home.xhtml</... Welcome pages are defined at the Web application level.

This is a simple Hello World application with Spring 3 MVC. Like the default Apache HTTPd welcome page, it displays " It works! " when successfully deployed. The sole purpose is to show the minimum elements needed to setup Spring 3 MVC. I use Maven since it's so much easier than downloading the dependencies manually.

Tomcat allows you to create multiple server instances for the same installation. The installation directory is identified as CATALINA_HOME , the instance directory is identified as CATALINA_BASE . Here are the steps: Create a base directory for the new instance, for example: /home/nogeek/tomcat1 . Create the subdirectories: mkdir -p /home/nogeek/tomcat/{bin,conf,logs,temp,w...

This is a simple web application with a single servlet and a single JSP page. It is intended to be a test bed for JSTL tags. You may want to store all syntax, rules, and exceptions in your head, but in my opinion nothing beats a simple test program that allows you play with it all you want. So here it is (build with Maven ). Prerequisites: Maven: http://maven.apache.org/ . You don't need any prior knowledge of Maven, but you need to install the binary. JBoss: http://jboss.org/jbossas/downloads/ , or Tomcat: http://tomcat.apache.org/ if you don't run the SQL tests. You need to know how to deploy a web application (shh! Don't tell your boss it's just copying a file to the deployment folder). Steps: The directory...

This is built upon the simple test application for JSTL , which contained a single servlet and a single JSP page. If I want to use it to test all available JSTL tags, the servlet and JSP page would be too complicated. Instead, I want to group the JSTL tags into separate JSP pages and display each group based on the requested URL. For example, if the URL ends with /CoreBasic , I'll display a page that contains the basic core tags; if the URL ends with /I18N , I'll display a page that contains the internationalization tags (e.g., <fmt:message> ). Furthermore, I want to delegate the handling of each group of tags to separate Java classes. This is the application I'll use for the...

It's easiest to use the archetype plugin to start a new Maven project. I'll use struts 1 as example since it's not in the built-in archetypes for archetype:generate .
