Subject RE: Problem undeploying Cocoon webapp from Tomcat
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2005 11:08:52 GMT
Problem solved. I eventually found the antiResourceLocking attribute for
configuring the context within Tomcat. This need to be set to true to
prevent tomcat locking resources in your webapp directory.

I should also add that this situation is occuring on a Windows XP system and
I have had no such problem when running on Linux. Sadly though, I am tied to
deploying on Windows.

Subject: Problem undeploying Cocoon webapp from Tomcat


        I currently have the following problem. When redeploying a cocoon
based webapp into Tomcat the deployment fails. This appears to be caused by
tomcat maintaining a hold on the cocoon-2.1.6 jar after the webapp has been
undeployed. All other artefacts in the exploded directory are successfully
removed. The exploded webapp directory cannot be removed until tomcat has
been shutdown. Once this has been done the war can be deployed. Has anybody
else come across this behaviour and if so has a solution/workaround been
discovered. I appreciate that in many cases this wouldn't normally be a
hindrance, but due to my particular circumstances it is becoming a complete
pain having to go through the process of stopping Tomcat, removing the
webapp manually and restarting before each deployment.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated. 

Best Regards
