Subject Re: deployment using the manager app
Date Tue, 06 Aug 2002 00:00:55 GMT
The easiest way to deal with this is to tell the manager to deploy the 
webapp into whichever directory is specified as the 'appBase' in the 
Host tag of server.xml.

Since apps that are under that directory are automatically deployed, 
you're all set.

The limitations are that the context name will be the same as the 
directory name, and that you can only have one 'appBase' directory.

We should put this in a FAQ -- I was wondering the same thing a few 
weeks ago.

But, I checked the directory of webapps, there is no newly created directory, and there is
no change to the conf/server.xml file either (no newly added context for the installed app).
If it is the corrrect behavior, that means this dynamic deployment is only transient.
