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 installdir/apps/myapp/ directory:
Run the following commands to create the directories:
$ sudo mkdir installdir/apps/myapp $ sudo mkdir installdir/apps/myapp/conf
Create and edit the installdir/apps/myapp/conf/httpd-prefix.conf file and add the line below to it:
Create and edit the installdir/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 ProxyPassReverse 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 installdir/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://localhost/myapp.
