Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-2964) Cannot specify the Tomcat work directory for a web application
Date Thu, 13 Sep 2007 00:45:37 GMT


Vamsavardhana Reddy updated GERONIMO-2964:

    Attachment: GERONIMO-2964-combined-new.patch


Now that plugin backward compatibility is not an issue, I guess this fix can go into 2.0.2
as well.  Here is a patch to allow a "work-dir" tag in web.xml.  For G/Jetty, the work-dir
is created under var/jetty and for G/Tomcat, the work-dir is created under var/catalina with
the specified name.  Once again, the patch does not address renaming the schema's to new versions
which is to be addressed before committing the patch.  I have verified that the patch works
on branches\2.0 without any test failures.  And the distributiions built address the issue
at hand.

> 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.
