Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2964) Cannot specify the Tomcat work directory for a web application
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2007 03:07:36 GMT


Donald Woods commented on GERONIMO-2964:

The way I verified that the original patch broke backwards compatibility with Geronimo 2.0.1,
was I -
1) integrated the patch into a local 2.0.2-SNAPSHOT build
2) started the Tomcat JEE5 assembly and tried to install the existing geronimo-jsp-examples
and geronimo-servlet-examples plugins from the 2.0.1 release.
When the plugin was being installed, it threw an exception due to the mismatch in the new
and CAR expected TomcatWebAppContext constructor....

> 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.
