[users@httpd] Apache http via tomcat WAR or Directory URL syntax (tomcat server.xml) for WAR application not working


I am attempting to launch a WAR web application from a tomcat service (tomcat 9.0.2, windows server 2008 R2), after invoking a URL in a browser (Firefox) hosted by an Apache HTTP server (Apache 2.4). The documentation …

states that the tomcat server.xml configuration file should have an entry:

 

<Context path=”/” WAR or Directory URL: file:path to war file (which in this case is C:\Program Files (x86)\apache-tomcat-9.0.6\webapps\OracleStatus.war)

 

The Catalina log file entry gives the following error message ….

The tomcat service then fails to start.

 

Please advise as to correct syntax to use in the server.xml configuration file.
