Subject Re: Problem deploying under Jetty version of Geronimo
Date Wed, 05 Apr 2006 14:09:07 GMT
Just to update this, I figured out what the problem I was having
making the switch to Jetty.

As it turns out, when running under Tomcat, the ACEGI restriction I
have placed on the index page that the user is directed to through the
<welcome-file-list> tag was sufficient. Under Jetty, I required an
ACEGI restriction on the root of the context as well. Once I applied
this extra restriction, Jetty works equally well with ACEGI.

Now I will do some testing to see if Jetty also suffers from the
CBLIB/classloader issue upon redeploy. I will have an answer shortly.
