Pega 7.2.1 Tomcat Installation Guides corrections



The Pega 7.2.1 Installation Guides for Tomcat incorrectly show the edits needed to the context.xml file.

In "Configuring Tomcat by editing the context.xml file", steps 4 and 5 are incorrect.
They need to include the type="java.lang.String" specification (similar to steps 6 and 7).

Also in "Configuring Tomcat by editing the context.xml file", the resource definition from the context.xml is using two options which have been renamed in Tomcat 8.
If installing on a Tomcat8 (or later) version, two changes are needed:
•The maxActive configuration option has been renamed to maxTotal
•The maxWait configuration option has been renamed to maxWaitMillis

Root Cause

Incorrect or incomplete documentation for Tomcat installations.


The relevant installation guides will be updated for the next version of Pega7.
