A knowledge base created by Metawerx, its customers and (hopefully) you!

It's purpose is to share information within the Metawerx Java community and the Java community as a whole, help new Java developers get started (or those new to hosted Java), and to help existing developers learn more about web.xml and the technologies they can use on their sites.

The content is focused around the technologies available with a Metawerx website, dedicated VM or Managed Java Server.

We hope you learn something by reading it!

Special features of this wiki, are the web.xml reference for Tomcat, and the Debug Your App Java Exception reference. The features available in web.xml are often misunderstood as most of the documentation assumes you already understand the concept. This wiki aims to provide examples for each web.xml element, and explain why you would want to use it in the first place.

If you find something out of place, or have information to contribute, please register using the Log In link and you can start helping to extend this wiki immediately.

This wiki runs on JSPWiki, with Tomcat 7.
