Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 51117] New: stopped deployment or virtual host reply with error 503
Date Tue, 26 Apr 2011 05:58:28 GMT

           Summary: stopped deployment or virtual host reply with error
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.32
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Catalina

When a deployment or a virtual host is stopped in tomcat5, an access attempt is
replied to with:
HTTP Status 503 - This application is not currently available

Wouldn't 404 be better?

The Http 500 category are server side errors. If a context or host isn't found,
it's a client error. Internally, there is no way to tell if the context exists
once it's been undeployed/stopped. The server, if the URL is syntactically
correct and lacking internal resources/configuration to do anything else,
should respond with HTTP404 (SC_NOT_FOUND).
