Subject tomcat-users.xml not written to when not configured to be in defa ult location
Date Wed, 24 Sep 2003 04:54:00 GMT

The Tomcat Administration tool does not appear to write to the
tomcat-user.xml file if it is not located in the default conf directory. I
have configured a UserDatabase to point to a location other than conf in the
tomcat installation for the tomcat-user.xml. For example:

   <!-- Editable user database that can also be used by
         UserDatabaseRealm to authenticate users -->
    <Resource name="UserDatabase" auth="Container"
type="org.apache.catalina.UserDatabase" description="User database that can
be updated and saved">
    <ResourceParams name="UserDatabase">
      <parameter>        <name>pathname</name>

I can add users and change passwords but they are not persisted to the file.
It appears that they are just held in memory until the server is restarted.
However they are persisted to the file as expected if the configuration
points at the default location in conf. Has anyone else seen this behaviour
and been able to fix it?
