Subject [jira] [Commented] (GERONIMO-3619) Allow context-param's to be overridden in geronimo-web.xml
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2011 00:39:51 GMT


Mike Hudgins commented on GERONIMO-3619:

+1 on this issue (to be released in any version of geronimo).

Tomcat, Glassfish, Jetty allow the context param's for servlet to be overridden at deployment
time without having to crack open the war file and modify the web.xml.

A scenario for our enterprise is leveraging one servlet/jee container amongst multiple parties
(for example multiple developers doing integration testing) and deploying the same war to
different contexts.  Examples of servlet context params to override:  Libraries such as Spring
and Log4J have context params which it would be nice to override for each deployed instance
of the war file.

> A user on our dev list requested the ability to override context-params specified in
a web.xml deployment descriptor. Tomcat supports this capability. Allowing the params to be
overridden allows users to deploy a war file without having to alter the contents of the war.
