           Summary: Unpacking WAR files does not preserve timestamps
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.0.28
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: tomcat-leak@hotmail.com


When a WAR is unpacked, the timestamps of the unpacked files are the unpack
date, not the date in the WAR file. This causes clients to believe that their
caches are out of date. This is a big problem if you're serving up JAR files to
dial-up users for WebStart applications.

I realize that preserving timestamps would cause JSP's to not be recompiled
(their timestamps might be older than the .java and .class files in the work
directory). However, if this directory were cleaned out, it would solve that
problem.
