Subject Re: Auto-deploy not working in Tomcat 5.5.4 when .war file has a META-INF/context.xml?
Date Thu, 11 Nov 2004 19:52:00 GMT
Thanks, I appreciate you testing that. However, it simply doesn't work for 
me. I don't see how it could work for you and it doesn't work for me. I have 
a totally stock installation of Tomcat 5.5.4 and used the same exact file 
that I sent to you. I start Tomcat, copy the file, it gets deployed, update 
the war (originally, I was just recreating the file so that it had a new 
modified time, however, I tried adding an additional file to it and that 
didn't make a difference either), copy it again, and it doesn't do anything. 
If I do the same thing with the other file that doesn't have the 
context.xml, it works fine.

Also, I just tried it on Solaris. I installed both .war files, they both 
deployed, touched the one without a context.xml, it redeployed, touched the 
one with a context.xml, nothing happened.

If anyone else is willing to test it, I have the files at the following
