Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3837) allowLinking Tomcat atttibute in StandardContext not configurable through Geronimo
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2008 19:42:09 GMT


Vamsavardhana Reddy commented on GERONIMO-3837:

This allowLinking attribute can be enabled on a per application basis.  However it would require
a tomcat specific element in geronimo-web.xml.  This would mean a schema change (argh... that
hurts) and requires modifications to deployment code.  We can provide enabling this attribute
per server instance for G 2.0.x and G 2.1.x Tomcat servers using a system property org.apache.geronimo.tomcat.GeronimoStandardContext.allowLinking
as it would require minimal changes to code and won't come in the way of compatibility.  If
there is a necessity to enable this attribute on a per application basis, then we can introduce
an allow-linking element in geronimo-web.xml from G 2.2 which will override any default value
set using the system property above.

Any comments?  Suggestions?  Any pit falls that I am not seeing?

 Configuring this attribute through Geronimo is not possible currently. Link to a query posted
on user-list is given below.
