Subject context problems: incorrect auto-deploy of webapps when context specifiers exist
Date Tue, 02 May 2006 04:46:41 GMT
Hi people,

Webapps with explicit Context specifiers in  server.xml  are not correctly recognized according
to their docBase specifiers. 

Tomcat consequently incorrectly deploys duplicates of these apps under default context specifiers.

For apps involving resources or non-trivial behaviour, eg sockets, this will result in resource
assignment being taken by the wrong instance. 

Reloading may also then become ineffective/ non-correctly functional as the intended instance
requested for reload is not the actual instance handling the resource or serving socket connections.
