Subject RE: cvs commit: jakarta-tomcat-catalina/catalina/src/share/org/apache/catalina/core
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2004 20:35:14 GMT
It isn't beyond the realm of possibility that I am doing
something stupid. This is what I did. Whilst looking into
bug11682 I created a very simple web app (just index.jsp)
made a war and then tried to deploy it via ant. I modified
the build.xml from the manager how-to and added the task
When using the deploy target, the results were as
described previously.
The root cause of the problem is that ExpandWar.expand
doesn't do anything if the context path is an empty string.
Hope this clarifies things.


<target name="deploy" description="Deploy web application">
  <deploy url="${url}" username="${username}" password="${password}"
war="file:///C:\\javadev\\bugsopen\\bug11682\\build\\bug11682.war" />
