JBoss 7.1.1 - Not able to set app to root context using jboss-web.xml

such Newbie

Hi

 

I have the following jboss-web.xml in my app to set root context.

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

 

<!DOCTYPE jboss-web PUBLIC

    "-//JBoss//DTD Web Application 4.2//EN"

    "http://www.jboss.org/j2ee/dtd/jboss-web_4_2.dtd">

 

<jboss-web>

        <context-root>/</context-root>

</jboss-web>

 

 

But I am getting this exception:

ERROR [org.jboss.msc.service.fail] (MSC service thread 1-16) MSC00001: Failed to start service jboss.web.deployment.default-host./: org.jboss.msc.service.StartException in service jboss.web.deployment.default-host./: Failed to start service

    Never mind. I got the solution.

     

    I disabled the default 'welcome' content, which is deployed in the root context by default.

     

    <subsystem xmlns="urn:jboss:domain:web:1.1" default-virtual-server="default-host" native="false">

                <connector name="http" protocol="HTTP/1.1" scheme="http" socket-binding="http"/>

                <virtual-server name="default-host" enable-welcome-root="false">

                    <alias name="localhost"/>

                    <alias name="example.com"/>

                </virtual-server>

    </subsystem>

     

     

    Thanks
