Subject issues with war file deployment
Date Mon, 02 Jun 2003 19:12:12 GMT
I am using Tomcat 4.1.18 to run my Struts 1.1 app. 
I am using a configuartion file appname.xml  in the "webapps" folder to deploy the application
along with a appname.war file.
Now the "Server Configuration Reference" of Tomcat has thie literature for Automatic application

Any XML file in the directory defined by appBase (Application Base directory) is assumed to
contain a Context element (and its associated subelements) for a single web application. The
docBase attribute of this <Context> element will typically be the absolute pathname
to a web applicationd directory, or the absolute pathname of a web application archive (WAR)
file (which will not be expanded). 


True to the reference my war file does not expand. But I am having a problem when using 

servlet.getServletContext().getRealPath( "/" ) in one of my startup servlets.

This is returning null and so the app fails to load.

Is there a way to solve this?
