    Default Change the name of the Project from web.xml

    Hello,

    if i use Tomcat 7 as a server, and my Project's name is "Old_Name" so when i want to run my server for this Project the path will be some thing like this:
    HTML Code:
    http://localhost:8080/Old_Name/.....
    I want to change it to something like that
    HTML Code:
    http://localhost:8080/New_Name/.....
    Is there any possibility to change the the URL of the Project (project name) from some configuration in Web.xml ???

    and how to do it?

    Well, the obvious answer is: Edit the HTML, replacing the old name with the new name.

    But that's so obvious and simple that I wonder what I'm missing. Perhaps you could clarify why that answer didn't occur to you or why the actual answer is more complex than that.

    if you mean to change the name of the Project, it is obvious very very easy, but it will make conflicts with names of other Projects, so the only choice is doing it through web.xml

    Then do that. If you understand the problem and know how to solve it, just do it. What do you want from us?

    And it's not helpful to keep adding more details about the problem as you receive suggestions on how to attack it. Start by providing everything you know and understand about the problem, desribe what you don't know or any sources of confusion, and ask specific questions about how to work to a solution. Playing "I've got a secret" when asking for help is pointless.

    My specific question is: if there any possibility to change the Project name using some tags < > in web.xml, if yes so which one?

    Otherwise i can't change name of the Project manually, because the desired name is already exists in my workspace + this is wish of my boss
