Create a custom Java application
Many users run a Bitnami stack as a development environment for their own projects (as opposed to running third-party applications). To create a custom Java application from scratch, follow the steps below. These steps assume that your application will live in the /opt/bitnami/apps/myapp/ directory:
Run the following commands to create the directories:
$ sudo mkdir /opt/bitnami/apps/myapp $ sudo mkdir /opt/bitnami/apps/myapp/conf
Create and edit the /opt/bitnami/apps/myapp/conf/httpd-prefix.conf file and add the line below to it:
Create and edit the /opt/bitnami/apps/myapp/conf/httpd-app.conf file and add the content below to it. This is the main configuration file for your application, so modify it further depending on your application’s requirements.
<Location /myapp> ProxyPass ajp://localhost:8009/myapp </Location>
NOTE: 8009 is the default port for the AJP connector. If you have customized the stack to use a different port, change it here as well.
Once you have created the files and directories above, add the following line to the end of the main Apache configuration file at /opt/bitnami/apache2/conf/bitnami/bitnami-apps-prefix.conf, as shown below:
Restart the Apache Tomcat server.
You should now be able to access the application at http://SERVER-IP/myapp.
