Subject Re: Can't override context-root for web app at deployment time
Date Mon, 12 Jun 2006 15:52:52 GMT
I absolutely agree with the comments on the JIRA entry on this. As it 
stands we have to modify the EAR to change the context-root in the 
application context, whereas the deployer should be able to over-ride this 
(in our case via the geronimo-application.xml).

In Websphere 6 the deployer can over-ride this in two ways, via the 
application assembly tool which is basically a tool that allows you to 
unzip an EAR, change internal deployment descriptors, and rebuild the EAR 
(i.e. changing the EAR), or the context root can be changed during 
deployment (during a web based wizard) or after deployment (via the web 
based admin console. To my mind the later two cases are analogous to using 
the geronimo-application.xml deployment descriptor at deployment time.
