Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
Tomcat 6 - sample context.xml
Configuring and Controlling Tomcat example from a Well House Consultants training course
More on Configuring and Controlling Tomcat [link]

This example is described in the following article(s):
   • Tomcat 6 - Annotated Sample Configuration Files - [link]
   • Command line parameter handling in Python via the argparse module - [link]
   • XML handling in Python - a new teaching example using etree - [link]

Source code: 6_context.xml Module: A654
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>

<!-- +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

This file is one of a suite of configuration files ...
  context.xml
  web.xml
  tomcat_user.xml
  server.xml
that we set up on our "deploying Apache httpd and Tomcat" course to
configure Tomcat and web applications that are running within it.

In these sample, we have stripped out many of the optional facilities
to help you see the bare-bones essentials, and we have also added in a
handful of other facilities which are not enabled by default; of course,
there is no "one size fits all" so you should tailor to meet your own
needs.

These samples are for release [version] 6.0 of Apache Tomcat. Please
see our other samples (or ask) for earlier versions.

<!-- **** Note - we have added in the reloadable and privileged attributes
to enable the invoker servlet and cgi support (other changes needed in
web.xml too for that, though **** -->

    <!-- Uncomment this to disable session persistence across Tomcat restarts -->
