Subject generateConfigs option: should be ON by default
Date Wed, 11 Oct 2000 17:56:37 GMT
So it seems a "-generateConfigs" option has snuck in to
Was this discussed?  I can't find a thread where it was.

I don't like this at all, since all options should be set in
server.xml, and also since generating auto config files should be *on*
by default, to preserve expected behavior, and to reduce the number of
steps required to install tomcat into apache.


* Move -generateConfigs into server.xml as an attribute of
ContextManager (or is there something about it being run at startup
that precludes server.xml?)

* Make the option "true" by default

XXX document it after it's tested and agreed
