Subject RE: Tomcat 5.5.0 - Child name is not unique error
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2004 15:50:37 GMT
Thanks for looking into this matter.
I have repeated the exact same process, creating a 'lololo' web app the same way I did create
'blabli' , and I get the same error (Child name 'lololo' is not unique).
I am 100% sure that I don't have 2 web apps with the same path. The error comes when I add
a 'context' tag in server.xml (in my case I'm just trying to add a logger), as explained in
my previous mail.
Also, I did try doing the exact same with tomcat 5.0.12: it works fine (no error and the logger
is created).

There's nothing strange about this error: you can't have two webapps
wieh the same path. You couldn't in Tomcat 4.x or 5.0.x, and you can't
in 5.5.x. ;)
