           Summary: No mention of limitation regarding deployment with
                    multi-level context paths (e.g. /123/456)
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.23
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Webapps:Manager
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: d.alexander@lse.ac.uk


If I understand correctly, the manager app doesn't support deployment with
multi-level context paths e.g. path="/123/456".

I couldn't see any mention of this limitation in the docs. Would be useful if it
was mentioned there.

Also, if trying to do this, the deployment fails but with no explanation. It
should be simple to add a test for multi-level paths and exit with an
appropriate error message, e.g.

Inserting after this block from org.apache.catalina.manager.ManagerServlet

        // Validate the requested context path
        if ((path == null) || path.length() == 0 || !path.startsWith("/")) {
            writer.println(sm.getString("managerServlet.invalidPath", path));
            return;
        }

the following code at line 588:

        if (path.lastIndexOf("/") > 0) {
            writer.println(sm.getString("managerServlet.unsupportedPath", path));
            return;
        }

Adding appropriate messages to properties files of course.


It would be even better if the manager could deploy apps using such a context
path but that would be an enhancement so I'll request that separately.
