Issue:

Tomcat 6 and 7 come with extra webapps installed. These can be viewed by navigating to the localhost:8080 address without the /dcma subdirectory. These webapps include documentation for tomcat, tomcat management, and other unused webapps. These webapps are tomcat defaults and we do not use them actively in Ephesoft. Although there are no security issues with these webapps since you cannot log into them without first configuring the user in the tomcat-users.xml file, some customers may wish to remove these webapps.

Solution:

These webapps can be removed with no adverse effects to Ephesoft by deleting the webapps directory from the <Ephesoft install location>\JavaAppServer\ directory. Restarting Epehsoft will be required for the changes to take effect.
