Subject Re: The case of the disappearing webapps...
Date Sat, 20 Jan 2001 17:36:48 GMT
	Probably caused by using a URLClassLoader.  On Windows, it locks
JAR files and never lets go (I've seen this).  Also, there was a rumor
that it caches JAR files so if you redeploy an updated app with a new JAR
file with the same name as the old one it will still use the old one, or
something like that.  I haven't tried to confirm that part of it.
	The only solution I've found is to implement a new ClassLoader for
JAR files, because if you're very careful with your JarFile objects and
streams you can definitely avoid this on Windows.  I haven't seen that
problem on Linux.
