Subject RE: ant emulation of "Upload a WAR file to install"
Date Mon, 23 Feb 2004 15:51:39 GMT
This says everything...Excerpt from
"Tomcat does not detect changes to the WAR archive, so it does not
automatically deploy new versions of an application when new WAR files
are copied over old ones in the Tomcat deploy directory (except in the
case of statically specified Tomcat applications in the server.xml
configuration file)."

Thanks. I'll give that a try... when does tomcat notice
the war file?
