Subject Re: Deploys to work/Standalone/localhost... why?
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2003 18:03:59 GMT

Well, you are describing exactly what the "deploy" task is for.  If you are 
using this for development purposes, you should use the "install" task 
which doesn't persist the context after a Tomcat restart.  Instead, it just 
mounts the directory which is the root of your just built webapp as a 
running context in Tomcat.  It doesn't send any file anywhere and a simple 
stop of Tomcat or the "remove" task gets rid of all traces that your app 
was even running under Tomcat.  It is *much* more convenient for 
development purposes than "deploy/undeploy".
