Subject RE: Annoyance in the deployer
Date Mon, 06 Dec 2004 14:03:19 GMT
It is annoying. I have a remote share on the network that is only static
files and I had to convince someone to create a WEB-INF folder on that share
and give them a nearly-empty web.xml. I would prefer to not have to maintain
it.
