Web application installed with Tomcat manager is lost after shutdown when using unpackWARs
= false.

           Summary: Web application installed with Tomcat manager is lost
                    after shutdown when using unpackWARs = false.
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0.1 Final
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jonathan_ramsey@bristol-city.gov.uk


I found this problem while I was trying to work around the bugzilla bug id = 
5680. Part of the work around I was trying involved turning off unpacking of 
WAR files, (unpackWARs="false") for the Host defined in my server.xml file.

I expected to be able to:
- install a web application using the Tomcat 4 manager from a local war file.
- shutdown Tomcat 4
- startup Tomcat 4
- have the web application available (running) again.

The problem is:
- I found that after startup, Tomcat 4 'forgets' that the web application was 
installed.

I have repeated the procedure with 3 different web applications - each time 
with the same result.

I have included full steps to reproduce this problem below.

1. Single virtual host defined in server.xml file. Set unpackWARs flag to false 
so Tomcat doesn't unpack WAR files.
	<Host name="localhost" debug="0" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="false">
2. work directory contains no files before startup.
3. webapps directory contains only 1 web application (manager).
	manager
	-- WEB-INF
	---- web.xml
4. Startup tomcat.
5. manager application (http://localhost/manager/list) shows the following web 
applications.
	OK - Listed applications for virtual host localhost
	/manager:running:0
6. install NewW3Menu application (http://localhost/manager/install?
path=/NewW3Menu&war=jar:file:/home/user/NewW3Menu.war!/).
	OK - Installed application at context path /NewW3Menu
7. work directory contains:
	localhost
	-- NewW3Menu
	---- WEB-INF
	------ classes
	-------- log4j.xml
	-------- uk
	---------- gov
	------------ bristol_city
	-------------- w3menu
	---------------- ControllerServlet.class
	---------------- MenuGraphicsPage.class
	---------------- TopGraphicsPage.class
	---------------- frame_graphics.class
	---------------- menu_text.class
	---------------- top_touchscreen.class
	---------------- FrameGraphicsPage.class
	---------------- MenuTextPage.class
	---------------- TopMinimisedPage.class
	---------------- frame_minimised.class
	---------------- menu_touchscreen.class
	---------------- FrameMinimisedPage.class
	---------------- MenuTouchscreenPage.class

	-------- adabasd.jar
	-------- jdbc2_0-stdext.jar
	-------- poolman.jar
	-------- w3m_classes.jar
	-------- xmlc.jar
	-- manager
8. webapps directory still contains only 1 web application (manager).
	manager
	-- WEB-INF
	---- web.xml
9. When the application is called from a web browser, it works.
10. Tomcat is shutdown.
11. In the work directory, two files have been added (SESSIONS.ser).
	localhost
	-- NewW3Menu
	---- SESSIONS.ser
	-- manager
	---- SESSIONS.ser
12. Tomcat is started up.
13. Manager application (http://localhost/manager/list) shows that NewW3Menu 
application is no longer running.
	OK - Listed applications for virtual host localhost
	/manager:running:0
13. Attempt to call NewW3Menu web application returns the following error:
	HTTP Status 500 - No Context configured to process this request
