Subject RE: Re: problems configuring cocoon 1.7.2 to read properties parame ter - he lp!
Date Wed, 26 Apr 2000 16:01:19 GMT
I think I've now narrowed it down to a problem with tomcat, since it 
doesn't appear to be taking any notice of the web.xml file (I already 
had the same configs) - the servlet name cocoon isn't in my webapp's 
context, but org.apache.cocoon.Cocoon is...

Although this list isn't strictly the right place for tomcat-related 
stuff, does anyone have any ideas on what the problem could be?

The strange thing is that when I put the web.xml configs in the web.xml 
in tomcat's conf directory, the configs are then read (i.e. for the 
ROOT context), but cocoon then either misreads the given path and thus 
can't read the properties file, or gets the correct path and reports 
that the file doesn't exist.

This is why I'm really confused.... any ideas? Maybe somebody has 
experienced something similar...
