let me set the scene first.
I have xampp installed in /opt directory on slackware 13.37 everything is working as it should, have set up a database and table and populated with data. I can see html files or php by going to http://localhost/anyfile.html
Also I have installed tomcat so a java server page in /var/lib/tomcat/webapps/ROOT can be seen at http://loclahost:8080/anyjsp.jsp
Now the interesting thing is a jsp in tomcat can connect to the MySQl in xampp and return data. This means tomcat and xampp can therefore communicate with each other once both are running.
My question and what I want to do is this:Can I configure xammp somehow, that I put a jsp file into /opt/lampp/htdocs and get get tomcat handle it , by xampp requesting that tomcat handles it , but still display the file at http://localhost/file.jsp ?
In other words if tomcat can connect to xampp and pass data, can it do it the otherway around. They do this with apache
and tomcat but I find xampp easier to use.
