Subject problem deploying J2EE RI-built EAR/WAR file
Date Fri, 17 Nov 2000 21:08:31 GMT

I'm trying to get a WAR file created with the J2EE reference
implementation deployment tool to deploy on Tomcat 4.0.  The new
env-entry feature (as of 11/1) is working.  Here's part of my web.xml

    <description>no description</description>
    <description>no description</description>

We are having two problems:

1.  If I start the server with just the .war file, two levels of
directories are created (webapps/vltrack/vltrack) instead of one

2.  I added a leading '/' to the jsp-file parameter below because
Tomcat threw the following error at startup:

2000-11-17 15:36:42 StandardHost[localhost]: Deploying web application
at context path /vltrack from URL
2000-11-17 15:36:42 ContextConfig[/vltrack] Configuration error in
application web.xml
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: JSP file index.jsp does not start
with a / character

This WAR deployed on both J2EE RI and Weblogic 5.1 so it seems there
may be a slight bug here.
