Subject Re: manager app permissions issue
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2003 17:24:41 GMT
Which Tomcat version are you using (works for me with 4.1/5.0)? From the 
error you have provided, seems you are trying to get access to class 
ManagerServlet from one of your class. ManagerServlet class is package 
protected by Tomcat when running with the security manager (your case). 
If you want to use it (and open a possible SECURITY hole), add this to 
your catalina.policy:

  permission java.lang.RuntimePermission 

At your own risk :-)
