Select application and Apply to servers & Web servers to map modules to servers. Then click on "Next".
Step 3:Map virtual hosts for Web modules
Select "defult_host". Then click on "Next".
Step 4:Map context roots for Web modules
Specify Context Root. Then click on "Next".
6)If application is successful it will show like this
7)Click on "Review" and Select "Synchronize changes with Nodes" check box. Then click on "save" button.
8)Click on "OK".
9)Now start the application and verify the application through browser by sending request.
Above request is end user to Application Server
9080 -----Port no.
reservation -------->Context root which I specified at Step 4.
But this request is end user to Web Server...... Here web server response the request. Then request send to plug in. plug in redirects this request to Application Server. Last Application server sends application to end user through web server.....
