Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-418) Tomcat redeployment JAR locking
Date Mon, 20 Jul 2009 20:58:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLK-418?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12733349#action_12733349

Bob Schellink commented on CLK-418:
-----------------------------------

The antiResourceLocking is a configuration option for Tomcat and won't work with Glassfish.
In fact the context.xml file is Tomcat specific. I don't think other servers use it.

I'm quite surprised you see locking issues on Solaris. I thought only Windows lock files.

Perhaps we should introduce the ability to switch off auto-deployment in click.xml keeping
in mind that CLK-564 provides alternative solutions to the deployment problem.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: core
>    Affects Versions: 1.5 RC2
>         Environment: Tomcat 5.5.25, Click 1.5-M2, JDK 1.5, click-examples

> I am seeing intermitt Tomcat auto deployment issues, where there is a lock on a JAR in
click-examples/WEB-INF/lib/ which cannot be deleted. 
> This issue occurs regularly for a period and then does not occur at all.  The JAR being
locked on is fairly random.  Sometimes spring-*.jar or log4*.jar
> To fix this issue you stop Tomcat, delete the click-examples directory, and then restart
Tomcat. This is not a good development experience.
> This Tomcat behaviour is similar to CLK-82 when Click was scanning the classpath for
files named "/click-controls.xml". In these cases however the JAR being locked on was always
click-extras.

> Commenting out XmlConfigService#deployFilesInJars() fixes this issue as does setting
antiResourceLocking="true" in the click-examples/META-INF/context.xml
> <Context
>    path="/click-examples" 
>    reloadable="true"
>    antiJARLocking="true"
>    antiResourceLocking="true">
>    <ResourceLink 
>       name="users" 
>       global="UserDatabase"
>       type="org.apache.catalina.UserDatabase"/>
> </Context>
> I can see two solutions to this problem. First is we heavily document deployment options
on application servers:
> * Tomcat set    antiJARLocking="true" and  antiResourceLocking="true"
> * WebLogic unpack any click resources into your web applications /click directory before
deploying
> The other option is to make this configurable JAR deployment configurable:
>   <click-app deploy-jar-resources="true">
>   ..
>   </click-app>
> Otherwise we will get continual issues raised about Tomcat hot deployment.
> Note this issue does not occur on JBoss as they create a new webapp instance each time
you deploy an application.  This is a mode you can use in Tomcat as well (since JBoss uses
Tomcat internally) but it is not the default Tomcat configuration.
