You ever want to run multiple instance of tomcats with the same install base, but tired of copy and setup server.xml file? Attached are couple Groovy scripts that create new server instances, and a tool to quickly setup a new Groovlet webapp.
Assume you have installed Tomcat6 or Tomcat5 in /opt/tomcat directory.
Run it again to create another instnace with mytomcat2, and it should configure to port 8082 and so on...
Each new server instance will contains a ROOT webapp that list all other webapps for quick links.
Also, the server instance is configured with Tomcat manager webapp enabled with user admin. If you are in this stage, you ought to know where to look for your password.
To remove a install instance
This script will create a new webapp directory structure with all the Groovlet setup ready.
Start your server and you have a webapp ready to go!
The mysqlreport.groovy is a updated version of Andrew Glover's
And you will need mysql jdbc driver jar copy into webapp/WEB-INF/lib to work.
