In this chapter, we covered the
Host component within a Tomcat installation. We looked at how the
Host works in concert with its configurator and valves to implement the deployment of contexts, the invoking of the context as part of request processing, and the reporting of errors that arise from this processing.
We took a close look at context fragments and the various ways in which contexts may be deployed as running web applications.
In the next chapter, we will get up close and personal with the grand daddy container of them all—the
Context. Fasten your seat belts folks because things are going to get a bit rough ahead!
