By default, the SearchLimit extent in DDE employs the Tomcat servlet engine integrated within DDE. This article demonstrates how to edit the DDE Config script to write the SearchLimit extent to a DDE servlet such as ServletExec or another version of Tomcat.
In order to use this article, the Data Delivery extension (DDE) servlet must be already configured to run with an existing servlet engine such as Tomcat or ServletExec.
set ServletConfigFileLocation="<drive>:\<ServletExec installation>\ServletExec Data\default\DDE\WAR\WEB-INF\web.xml"
set ServletConfigFileLocation="<drive>:\<Tomcat installation>\webapps\DDE\WEB-INF"
Adjust the drive letters and the installation directory accordingly and ensure that the path is surrounded by double quotes.
The Searchlimit extent set in the DDE Config dialog will automatically be written to the web.xml file specified above. Any edits to the web.xml will only take effect once the servlet engine is restarted.
