+ I am running Tomcat on a UNIX-like (LINUX) server and have a practice of having one user
ID (softowner) that is the owner of the Tomcat configuration files, class files, and application
libraries.  In general any file that doesn't need to be modified by the running application.
 I use another ID (dataowner) as the effective user of the running server.  This owns the
data files and work files.
+ 
+ As Tomcat 3.2 works I can give dataowner write access to webapps/work, I give softowner
write access to webapps, webapps/classes, webapps/lib, webapps/htdocs , etc.
+ 
+ My problem is that I both softowner and dataowner need write access into the config directory
because the program creates config files as the server starts.  but softowner needs write
access to work with othe config files.
+ 
+ I would like to have a way to suppress generation of config files or explicit invokation
of the capability.  I also want better seperation between what the running program needs write
access to and what it only needs read access to.
+ 
+ ------- Additional Comments From marc.saegesser@apropos.com  2001-03-11 12:22 -------
+ Sounds like a good idea.  It won't make it into 3.2.2, but we should look at 
+ this for 3.3 and later.
