Thanks Remy. I have managed to run the embedded Tomcat 4x. However, I still
have a bit of a problem with context configuration. Suppose I install a WAR
directory containing a XSLT servlet. The output from this XSLT servlet is
XHTML, which contains relative references to images and CSS files. If I
place all these relative reference files (in a proper directory structure)
in the root directory of the WAR, these are inaccessible. I cannot place
them in a different directory and get it from there either. Looks like there
is a problem with the contexts configuration.

Suppose my servlet is called as
then any reference like http://localhost:8182/xsltservlet/images/myimage.gif
is not available even if it is in the directory path. It does not also let
me browse the virtual directory http://localhost:8182/xsltservlet/. How do I
go about solving this problem?

Thanks again.

You can look at the Tomcat 5 embedded distribution (basically, you get
an Ant script replacing server.xml). The included example Ant script
just makes some basic JMX calls to create an embedded Tomcat, so you
don't have to use Ant (but, for an example, it's obviously easier to
understand and more readable) or have any dependencies on the Tomcat APIs.

The old Tomcat 4.x Embedded class is also supported (except it has been
rewritten to use the standard behavior rather than being a special case).

I believe some real docs on embedding would be useful, including:
- embedding Coyote
- embedding Tomcat using Embedded
- embedding Tomcat with JMX
