java jetty - How do you specify the root context in your<web-app>tags in web.xml?




vs tomcat (2)

This can't be done in an appserver agnostic way. Context root isn't part of the standard web.xml file. It's either specified when you deploy the app or in an appserver specific descriptor.

Note: the above applies to deploying WAR files. EAR files are a different story and the context can be specified as part of the application.xml deployment descriptor.

I would like to specify the root context of my Java web application in my WAR file. How can I do this using valid web-app XML in a web.xml file?

Oh, yes I would like to do this in an application server agnostic way.


This a rework from decimal to binary of the old Marchant calculator algorithm (sorry, I don't have a reference), in Ruby, adapted specifically for this question:

def isexactsqrt(v)
    value = v.abs
    residue = value
    root = 0
    onebit = 1
    onebit <<= 8 while (onebit < residue)
    onebit >>= 2 while (onebit > residue)
    while (onebit > 0)
        x = root + onebit
        if (residue >= x) then
            residue -= x
            root = x + onebit
        end
        root >>= 1
        onebit >>= 2
    end
    return (residue == 0)
end

Here's a workup of something similar (please don't vote me down for coding style/smells or clunky O/O - it's the algorithm that counts, and C++ is not my home language). In this case, we're looking for residue == 0:

#include <iostream>  

using namespace std;  
typedef unsigned long long int llint;

class ISqrt {           // Integer Square Root
    llint value;        // Integer whose square root is required
    llint root;         // Result: floor(sqrt(value))
    llint residue;      // Result: value-root*root
    llint onebit, x;    // Working bit, working value

public:

    ISqrt(llint v = 2) {    // Constructor
        Root(v);            // Take the root 
    };

    llint Root(llint r) {   // Resets and calculates new square root
        value = r;          // Store input
        residue = value;    // Initialise for subtracting down
        root = 0;           // Clear root accumulator

        onebit = 1;                 // Calculate start value of counter
        onebit <<= (8*sizeof(llint)-2);         // Set up counter bit as greatest odd power of 2 
        while (onebit > residue) {onebit >>= 2; };  // Shift down until just < value

        while (onebit > 0) {
            x = root ^ onebit;          // Will check root+1bit (root bit corresponding to onebit is always zero)
            if (residue >= x) {         // Room to subtract?
                residue -= x;           // Yes - deduct from residue
                root = x + onebit;      // and step root
            };
            root >>= 1;
            onebit >>= 2;
        };
        return root;                    
    };
    llint Residue() {           // Returns residue from last calculation
        return residue;                 
    };
};

int main() {
    llint big, i, q, r, v, delta;
    big = 0; big = (big-1);         // Kludge for "big number"
    ISqrt b;                            // Make q sqrt generator
    for ( i = big; i > 0 ; i /= 7 ) {   // for several numbers
        q = b.Root(i);                  // Get the square root
        r = b.Residue();                // Get the residue
        v = q*q+r;                      // Recalc original value
        delta = v-i;                    // And diff, hopefully 0
        cout << i << ": " << q << " ++ " << r << " V: " << v << " Delta: " << delta << "\n";
    };
    return 0;
};
