Tomcat’s Global Configuration Files

Tomcat has three global configuration files (applicable to all web applications) at $CATALINA_HOME\conf:

  • $CATALINA_HOME\conf\server.xml: Tomcat main configuration file.
  • $CATALINA_HOME\conf\web.xml: web application deployment descriptors, for all the web contexts.
  • $CATALINA_HOME\conf\context.xml: Tomcat specific configuration options.
