Subject Re: Autodeploy WAR File to ROOT Context Problem
Date Tue, 15 Jul 2003 20:14:13 GMT
I found out what caused the delete of the context XML file:

It is deleted after removing the SoiledDove web application (in other 
words the webapp with the same name as the war... I think this may be 
because my war and xml have the same name: SoiledDove.xml., SoiledDove.war)
