Subject War Extraction Problem
Date Mon, 14 Jan 2002 22:37:25 GMT

Current setup:

SGI-Redhat 7.1
IBM JDK 1.3-10 (by rpm w/ apps rpm)
Tomcat 4.0.1-1 (by rpm)

When I use the manager app to load the webmail.war from I get the following...


FAIL - Encountered exception
/var/tomcat4/webapps/webmail/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF (No such file or

Sure enough there is not becuase the war file didn't
extract, and there is no /var/tomcat4/webapps/webmail directory at all. 
On the other hand I've jar-ed through the war file and
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF is present in the war file.

I have tried to manualy extract the war file, and I get XML problems in
WEB_INF/server.xml which I'm taking to the jwma people.  But in the mean
time, am I just not doing something right?  Isn't this supposed to
extract the war file or at least access the file in the war

Thanks in advance,
