You can still run these versions with Lando but for all intents and purposes they should be considered deprecated eg YMMV and do not expect a ton of support if you have an issue.
Not officially supported!
While we allow users to specify patch versions for this service they are not officially supported so if you use one YMMV.
To use a patch version you can do something like this:
services: my-service: type: tomcat:7.0.91
But make sure you use one of the available patch tags for the underlying image we are using.
Here are the configuration options, set to the default values, for this service. If you are unsure about where this goes or what this means we highly recommend scanning the services documentation to get a good handle on how the magicks work.
services: my-service: type: tomcat:8 webroot: . ssl: false config: server: SEE BELOW web: SEE BELOW context: SEE BELOW users: SEE BELOW
You may need to override our default tomcat config with your own.
If you do this you must use files that exists inside your applicaton and express them relative to your project root as below.
Note that the default files may change based on how you set
A hypothetical project
Note that you can put your configuration files anywhere inside your application directory. We use a
config directory in the below example but you can call it whatever you want such as
./ |-- config |-- server.xml |-- web.xml |-- context.xml |-- tomcat-users.xml |-- index.html |-- .lando.yml
Landofile using custom tomcat config
services: my-service: type: tomcat config: server: config/server.xml web: config/web.xml context: config/context.xml users: config/tomcat-users.xml
