Subject [Bug 51294] Since 7.0.12 do not work option unpackWARs=true for WARs outside appBase
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2012 15:26:27 GMT

--- Comment #15 from jwa@urbancode.com ---
Not expanding and having no option to expand external war files is a major
inconvenience for us as well.
The fact that the unpackWAR attribute in the context, when explicitly set to
true, does not result in the war being unpacked is very unintuitive.  It would
normally expect that an explicit setting on that should trump all other
defaults/behavior.

However as a workaround, I have found that making an appropriately named
symlink inside the webapps directory pointing to the external war seems to
suffice.  This may be an acceptable long term solution.
