Subject RE : RE : RE : Can someone explain catalina.home & catalina.base?
Date Wed, 21 Aug 2002 13:08:15 GMT
I upgraded to Tomcat 4.1.9 beta to see if that made a difference.  I
also changed my JDK from 1.4.1beta to 1.3.1.  This didn't change
anything.  Then I found a post in the mailing list archives:

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=tomcat-user&m=102278697817471&w=2

Which suggested creating a temp directory in my catalina.base directory.
So I tried this.  Now I am past the JAR file errors.  In fact, in the
logfile there are no errors at all:

2002-08-21 15:04:33 StandardContext[/oemserver]: Starting filters

2002-08-21 15:04:34 HostConfig[localhost]: BACKGROUND THREAD Starting
2002-08-21 15:04:49 HostConfig[localhost]: Deploying discovered web
applications

I see the output in console from my timerservlet so I know everything is
OK there.  I then try to access the URL:

HTTP Status 404 - /oemserver/login.jsp
------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------
type Status report
message /oemserver/login.jsp
description The requested resource (/oemserver/login.jsp) is not
available.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------
Apache Tomcat/4.1.9

I look in the log file:

2002-08-21 15:01:18 StandardHost[localhost]: Mapping request URI

2002-08-21 15:01:18 StandardHost[localhost]:   Trying the longest

match2002-08-21 15:01:20 HostConfig[localhost]: Deploying discovered web

This part is confusing:

2002-08-21 15:01:18 StandardContext[/oemserver]:   Trying exact match
2002-08-21 15:01:18 StandardContext[/oemserver]:   Trying prefix match
2002-08-21 15:01:18 StandardContext[/oemserver]:   Trying extension
match
2002-08-21 15:01:18 StandardContext[/oemserver]:   Trying default match

I don't know what that means.  But overall, there are no errors and it
does not work.  At this point I'm convinced I've stumbled upon a bug.  I
appreciate any help you may have.
