Here are the configuration options, set to the default values, for this service. If you are unsure about where this goes or what this means, we highly recommend scanning the services documentation to get a good handle on how the magicks work.

Also note that options, in addition to the build steps and overrides that are available to every service, are shown below:

    type: tomcat:8
    webroot: .
    ssl: false
      server: SEE BELOW
      web: SEE BELOW
      context: SEE BELOW
      users: SEE BELOW

Using custom Tomcat config files

You may need to override our default tomcat configopen in new window with your own.

If you do this, you must use files that exist inside your application and express them relative to your project root as shown below:

Note that the default files may change based on how you set ssl.

A hypothetical project

Note that you can put your configuration files anywhere inside your application directory. We use a config directory but you can call it whatever you want such as .lando in the example below:

|-- config
   |-- server.xml
   |-- web.xml
   |-- context.xml
   |-- tomcat-users.xml
|-- index.html
|-- .lando.yml

Landofile using custom tomcat config

    type: tomcat
      server: config/server.xml
      web: config/web.xml
      context: config/context.xml
      users: config/tomcat-users.xml

Overriding the CATALINA_OPTS environment variable/enable Tomcat debugging

As with any Lando service, you can override almost any aspect of the service container that is built by Lando. For the Tomcat service, it is sometimes desireable to alter that CATALINA_OPTS environment variable, to, for example, enable Tomcat application debuggingopen in new window. However, CATALINA_OPTS is used by the Tomcat plugin's builderopen in new window to set a few properties that Lando uses in its default configuration of Tomcat. To save yourself trouble, you'll want to include these properties in CATALINA_OPTS, if you elect to override the environment variable. See the example below:

  - jdpa start
    - '8000:8000'
    JPDA_ADDRESS: "8000"
    JPDA_TRANSPORT: "dt_socket"
    CATALINA_OPTS: "-Dlando.http=80 -Dlando.https=443 -Dlando.webroot=/app/path-to-your-webroot -agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=n,address=*:8000"
