Exception while processing a JAR file





------- Additional Comments From emailbillgraham@yahoo.com  2003-11-04 20:36 -------
The requirement that $CATALINA_BASE/temp must exist for temp files came 
somewhere between 4.0.3 and 4.1.27. I agree that it's now a necessary 
directory for the jdk, and I wasn't advocating deleting $CATALINA_BASE/temp 
from the tomcat install, or that it shouldn't be required. My intent was to 
show how the poor error messaging would appear if $CATALINA_BASE/temp doesn't 
exist.

A more valid test case would involve upgrading an application running on 4.0.3 
set up in a way that $CATALINA_BASE != $CATALINA_HOME (a realistic scenario) 
to 4.1.27. The upgrade to 4.1.27 will not work without $CATALINA_BASE/temp, 
and the user will have no indication why based on the error messaging.

This upgrade scenerio above happened to me, as I'm sure it will happen to 
others. It took me a better part of the day to figure out that all that was 
needed was to do 'mkdir $CATALINA_BASE/temp'. With better error messaging, 
this can be avoided.
