Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2964) Cannot specify the Tomcat work directory for a web application

-----------------------------------------------

Paul, Donald,

I don't think it is necessary to change the constructor.  Since the only way the new workDir
parameter it is used in the constructor is to initialize a member "this.workDir", we can do
away by adding a setter method.  Let me see if I can come up with a new patch that does not
change the constructor.  If not, we can forgo the fix for 2.0.2 and fix it in 2.1.  The only
thing I was concerned is whether a schema change from 2.0.1 to 2.0.2 is acceptable.  May be
it is if we don't break compatibility.  Will report back soon.

Aman,
Will it be possible for you to post a simple test war file to verify if my new patch (if any).
 If not now, it will anyway be useful later when the issue is addressed.

Thanks

> In Tomcat, a work directory can be specified for a web application in a WEB-INF/context.xml
file.  The GeronimoStandardContext does not permit the user to specify a work directory, and
so the work directory defaults to var/catalina/work/<web-app>.
> I've submitted a patch file that modifies the geronimo-tomcat-1.2 schema to permit the
user to optionally specify a work directory.  This work directory is then propagated into
the TomcatContext.  I've tested this and it seems to work well.
