Subject [jira] Created: (GERONIMO-589) Standalone war does not have a default context
Date Sun, 20 Feb 2005 04:37:48 GMT
Standalone war does not have a default context

         Key: GERONIMO-589
     Project: Apache Geronimo
        Type: Bug
  Components: web  
    Versions: 1.0-M3    
    Reporter: Dain Sundstrom

If I have a standalone war with the following deployment plan:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<web-app xmlns=""



The module will deploy, but the following exception is thrown on startup:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Illegal context spec:null

This can be fixed by adding a context-root element to the deployment plan.  Either the context-root
element should be required, or preferably set the default context to the configuration id
which is the default in the case where you have no deployment plan.  Also the context-priority-classloader
element should be optional.
