Subject Ant - Tomcat deploy question
Date Mon, 10 Feb 2003 22:21:07 GMT

Hi folks,

I'm running TC 4.1.18, ANT 1.5, J2SDK1.4.0_01 on a W2K server - Tomcat is
running as a service.

When ANT places my "appName.war" file in the Catalina_Home/webapps directory
it doesn't deploy (i.e. unpack).

I stopped and started the Tomcat service, that didn't deploy appName.war.  

However, if I stop the service - delete the webapps/appName folder - execute
the ANT deploy-app command again - this works.

Why?  What am I missing - better yet what do I need to read?  I've read some
archive threads - do I really need to restart TC  or appName using Manager
after deployment?

Please enlighten the newbie...
