Subject RE: Tomcat Loads Deleted Context?
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2004 22:43:47 GMT
Where can I find  the Senor Epstein's description of
"what constitutes a deleted webapp"?

I looked everywhere I remembered and I could not find.

Thanks in advance,

This is new functionality to tomcat5.  Senor Epstein's description of
"what constitutes a deleted webapp" is accurate and well-written.

If you happen to think tomcat should refresh its conf directory
periodically or upon some trigger, please feel free to contribute a
patch ;)
