Web app libraries (log4j.jar) remain locked after web apps' stop / remove

           Summary: Web app libraries (log4j.jar) remain locked after web
                    apps' stop / remove
           Product: Tomcat 4
           Version: 4.0.3 Final
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: Other
         Component: Unknown
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: jmoravec@austar.com.au


Hi,
I have got automated deployment system that stops a web application and then 
replaces all the WEB-INF files the app is using (note I am not using a war 
archive) and starts the app. The problems is that when the app is stopped, 
Tomcat still keeps some of the lib files open (in my case it is only log4j.jar) 
and thus they cannot be overwritten by the deployment system.

I also tried to stop the application and remove it, but the log4j.jar file 
still remains locked and cannot be removed. All the other files/libraries are 
successfully removed. It might as well be some log4j issue, but perhaps someone 
might be aware of its weird behaviour in Tomcat apps.

Does Tomcat releases all context resources when the app is stopped? Or only 
when its removed?

Thanks a lot,
Jan
